Wimbledon IBM Seer 2010

IBM/Ogilvy – Seer Wimbledon 2010

Following the success of IBM Seer in 2009, which was the world’s first augmented reality app using live data feeds, the Seer Wimbledon 2010 app streams live video from on and off the court based on the user’s exact location. This will enhance the Wimbledon experience and transform how visitors to the tournament keep up with the action.

Both the Android and iPhone versions feature location-aware visualisation technology with the augmented reality application acting as a real-time guide and interactive map of the tournament as well as providing up-to-the-second scores, venue and transport information. The app features more than 90 points of interest ranging from the new shop through to the ATM next to centre court.
