VE-VE Digital Collectibles Come to Life With Augmented Reality!

We’re not just bringing you the world’s biggest brands- we’re bringing them to life! ECOMI recognized early that our digital collectibles would need to be as tangible and interactive as possible, and as the ideas developed, so too did the opportunities to explore and integrate new technologies. By adding augmented reality technology to the platform, we’re augmenting your digital collectible experience and truly disrupting the collectibles industry.

Bringing Digital Collectibles into the Real World

Augmented reality (AR) superimposes computer-generated images/graphics over your current view of the real world, forming a composite image and allowing for a whole host of new visual information to be presented, in real-time. Couple this with gestures, voice commands and physical actions, and AR has the potential to truly revolutionize our daily interactions with technology.

It is a feature that all modern smartphones are capable of, and although in its current state you need to use your phone to view things in augmented reality, it won’t be long before smartglasses are capable of the same features.

What Can I Do With VE-VE AR?

One of the key features of our digital collectibles platform is the ability to view and interact with your digital collectibles from day one- as you can see in the teaser video. Using the camera and capabilities of the modern smartphone, the app recognizes your surroundings, allowing you to display your digital collectibles, pin them to surfaces (such as your desk), and create Scenes and showrooms to show off to all your friends!

In early versions, you’ll also be able to take photos of the Scenes you’ve created, including the real-world surroundings you place your digital collectibles in- but this will eventually incorporate the ability to take video as well!

You can then share these photos with the internal social feed (wait till you see it!) as well as major social networking platforms to show off your digital collections to the world. Future releases will feature even more functionality and interaction, including:

  • Upgrade options e.g. additional weapons and skins
  • Adding actions and movements to your digital collectibles
  • Adding additional elements to your virtual showroom and Scenes, such as props, animations, and new backgrounds.

Augmented Reality Brings tokidoki Characters into the Real World!

International brands are recognizing the opportunity to move into the realm of digital products, and tokidoki- the international apparel and lifestyle brand- are the first to be announced for our digital collectibles platform. Their vibrant and colorful world of characters translates perfectly onto the digital medium, and we recently released a sneak peek of what they look like in beautifully rendered 3D images.

As you can probably imagine- we can’t reveal the full AR capabilities of our platform just yet- this is a beta teaser after all. However, it does give you some idea as to the capabilities and interactions you can expect from the VE-VE digital collectibles app. It is also a great way for us to showcase the time, details and considerations that have gone into their creation, and the creation of all of our digital collectibles moving forward.

Looking ahead, there are other more features to be added like adaptable lighting and shadows to make these digital collectibles even more lifelike, and of course, we’re holding more than a few tricks up our sleeves!
