PicPocket Licenses Augmented-reality IP; Acquires Know-how to Enhance Users' Live-event Experience
Company complements its geofencing-based, content-curation platform with IP to "ghost" images in virtual space in order to boost interactivity between event-goers, venues and brands.

"I was first introduced to Mark Skarulis and his "ghosting" augmented reality platform back in March 2011. As Rensselaer alumni, we'd crossed paths a few times" says Wolfram Gauglitz, Founder, PicPocket, Inc. "It was immediately obvious to me that our shared interest in geo-based content would ultimately intersect."

"The ability to "ghost" digital properties, brands and images at a landmark or live event (i.e. major league sports, concerts, fundraisers, etc.) for everyone to discover and enjoy is an obvious application"
"We have been working closely with our patent counsel to develop a portfolio around PicPocket's core IP. With the addition of "ghosting", we strengthen our position in the live-events space" says Gauglitz. "We expect to further enrich the PicPocket experience over time by providing additional support for patent-pending features such as dynamic/adaptive geofences, route mapping, exclusion zones, tools for advertising and event sponsorship, use with drones – and now augmented reality."
PicPocket is an Internet startup with offices in Austin and Dallas, TX. PicPocket's technology enables friends and family to curate content from any live event, thereby eliminating the pain, frustration and clumsiness of modern day photo-sharing. Use cases for PicPocket eventsharing™
