Wearable technology, especially smart eyewear, will be the next consumer mega trend, spawning a new era in interactive gaming and other forms of mobile entertainment – and with it, great opportunity for innovators and visionaries. Is that you?
Introducing the ideaBOOST/Mind Pirate Production Lab: a 3 month bootcamp for developers and companies that want to navigate the incredible potential of games on the next consumer mega trend of wearable technology. Created in part by the Toronto-based CFC Media Lab and Silicon Valley-based Mind Pirate, the ideaBOOST/Mind Pirate Production Lab marks the first-ever program focused on developing games and consumer apps for the emerging smart glass consumer market.
A select group of innovative developers will be selected to learn, collaborate and co-create a multiplatform game or other consumer experience with this unique team of technologists and visionaries. Developers will work with experienced Mind Pirate developers and will have early access to Mind Pirate’s Callisto platform – the only wearable technology platform on the market – to create 3-D games and apps across both current (iOS, Android) and future (Google glass & other wearables) mobile platforms.
