AR Games for Retailers
SkyVu RetailAR's gamification service gives retailers a big advantage over Amazon with Pokémon Go-like augmented reality shopping experiences that gets more customers into their stores.
In December 2014, CEO Ben Vu received one of the first Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition headsets and was blown away by the experience. He immediately saw the potential for mobile VR experiences. "It's only a matter of time before everyone's smartphone is capable of processing high-quality VR," said Vu. Since then, SkyVu has been researching and developing mobile VR software and recently started working in AR with Microsoft's HoloLens. We can't reveal what we've been working on yet but we can say that we're very excited about the upcoming launch of Google Daydream.
BATTLE BEARS named Top 50 Game Series
In September 2009, SkyVu launched the first 3D shooter game on the App Store with BATTLE BEARS ZOMBIES. The game reached the top of the charts within days and the BATTLE BEARS mobile game franchise was born. 5 years and millions of sessions and trillions of Huggables sacrificed, the BATTLE BEARS series has been named one of the Top Mobile Game Series by SlideToPlay. "Thanks to all the loyal BATTLE BEARS fans around the world, we're able to continue to build upon the success of the brand" says Ben Vu, co-founder and CEO.
