We're exploring business use cases for virtual reality, including engaging virtual tours.
We created a prototype AR app for the iPhone that shows users where the nearest Capital Bikeshare station is relative to the user’s location and directional orientation. The AR overlay shows the name and distance of each station.
We're developing functionalities for our offices with the Amazon Web Service Internet of Things Button.
We use our Flashforge Creator Pro 3D printer to produce a broad range of prototypes and tools that help us in our experiments with emerging technologies.
We created both a haptic compass that buzzes according to the direction of an iPhone and a standalone haptic device to detect iBeacons without the use of a smartphone.
We got a few RadBeacons to play around with, so we integrated them with Slack to create a "check-in" feature that alerts team members via Slack when someone gets into the office.
We created an Alexa skill that integrates with our beacon- and Slack-enabled Mission Data Office app. Staffers can ask the Amazon Echo to identify the specific location of someone in the office. We also created a skill for Alexa to tell our DC staffers which food trucks are outside the office at any given time.
Our latest thoughts, strategies, and not-so-secret missions.
