How we’re revolutionizing your connection to the city

Background:

Buzzin uses Augmented Reality platform to allow users to explore the city in a new, interactive and entertaining way. It overlays the physical world with the digital world at the same time supplying people with important information about their surroundings and events.

Buzzin was created in collaboration with CityVerve – Manchester’s IoT smart city demonstrator. The CityVerve project brings together the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, deployed at city scale to deliver transformative benefits: to create new businesses and jobs for Manchester, improve transport, healthcare and education and provide safer environment for citizens. It all begins with Buzzin.

Challenge:

To bring and showcase the benefits of IoT in smart cities.

Solution:

Buzzin app gives a better experience for every event in the city! With our app any idea can come to life whether it’s creating new artistic experiences or simpler features targeted at specific occasions.

Whilst enjoying festivals, events, exhibitions users can navigate in Augmented Reality, interact with physical world; discover new places within the city; play games, win prizes and have fun!
