Epkss and Bahrain Olympic Committee’s (BOC) has signed an agreement to develop a mobile application
Epkss has signed an agreement with the Bahrain Olympic Committees (BOC) for the development of a Smart Phone Application for Android and IOS Devices. This new application will be a comprehensive directory that gives access to information on all stadiums, clubs and sport shops, as well as any sports-related information or premises in the kingdom of Bahrain.
The 3D Augmented Reality Technology will be used to develop this application known as (AR) which is a cutting-edge technology that allows for a digital enhanced view of the real world, connecting you with more meaningful content in your everyday life. With the camera and sensors in a smartphone or tablet, AR adds layers of digital information – videos, photos, sounds – directly on top of items in the world around us, as stated by Mr. Zakaria Alakhras, the PDM at Epkss .
It is noteworthy that this project will be carried out by Kastanah for smart phone apps development, which is a subsidiary company of Epkss. This application is expected to be ready in the Google and Apple stores by the end of May 2014.
