The complexity of iBeacon from software integration and hardware deployment has been limited to trials with no breakthrough successes found. Short of buying …
The producers of Advertising Week invited us along with less than a handful of other innovative startups to present in their Data & Sensor Lab at the Time Center this week. We showed how we are powering large screens in public places like airports and malls for relevant marketing to those who walk with their smartphones in front of the screen. Much like the movie Minority Report did by using Hollywood trickery and somewhat creepy eyeball detection.
With our system, users would opt-in to …
