The provinces first-ever sold out #BCTECH Summit taking place on January 18 and 19th at the Vancouver Convention Centre will feature QuestUpon, one of our many members at SRCTec in Mission, BC. The creators of QuestUpon have a long history in mobile platform and game development with their associate company, PlayMobility. Before the smartphone came along, they had envisioned gamifying the real world to inspire an active lifestyle, by combining augmented reality and geocaching. The concept was years in the making, but it wasn’t until 2011 that they created Legend Tracker, that allowed explorers to track, find, and see legends, such as Sasquatch and Loch Ness Monster, in augmented reality, as they travel a region. This resulted in people submitting various pictures and videos of legend sightings, to Legend Tracker, and in 2013 one of these submitted videos went viral as news of the Sasquatch sighting in Mission BC reached over 250 million people around the world!
QuestUpon has been invited by the BC Innovation Council (BCIC) to have their business included in the Technology Showcase, to provide an augmented reality (AR) experience featuring the mining industry. They’ve also asked us to provide an AR experience on the main stage for the opening session. They are having some fun with all this!
If you plan on attending the event stop in to visit QuestUpon at booth number 113. Both Miles Marziani, CEO/Founder and Tammy Meyers COO will be there and would love to say Hello!
QuestUpon will be posting pictures and videos from the event. Follow them for updates on Twitter and Facebook!
