Tautachrome, the developer of ARknet, announced the launch of TravelPin inside the ARknet mobile platform. TravelPin provides travellers with the ability to create, share, and explore geolocated AR TravelPins worldwide that is loaded with photos, memories, travel encounters, among others. Travellers can create TravelPins and display years of travel experiences and/or browse others and add those places to their bucket list.
TravelPins are a universal mapped community of geolocated 3D augmented reality objects which are present inside the ARknet social platform. Travellers can communicate with these TravelPins and different 3D objects in AR by utilising ARknet’s features like Summon and Teleport. Summoning allows for a traveller to select a TravelPin from anywhere in the globe and display it in AR at their current location for communication. Teleporting positions a traveller’s geo-location anywhere in the world, providing for travel and creating as if they were there.
ARknet’s mission is content and data privacy. When a traveller creates their TravelPins, it is at their choice whether the data they share is private for only them to see, or has limited access only viewable by friends, or public for all to view and interact with.
“We are excited to officially launch ARknet’s TravelPin brand as people love to explore, create, and share with others. Even though 2020 thus far has seen a halt to the majority of the world’s travel plans, TravelPin still allows for users to not only share a lifetime of past experiences but also explore others’ and decide where they are headed next.” – David LaMountain, Tautachrome’s COO.
In future, Tautachrome plans to launch other brands within the ARknet platform with more exciting augmented reality-based products.
