This is an absolutely cracking idea
It's as if the messages have been etched on the air
Geolocation meets messaging meets augmented reality meets tech brains everywhere exploding
Leave digital surprises in real-life locations
The existing product was using an obsolete technology and we had to turn in into a scalable solution that would work for different business purposes while adding new features.
Pick an emoji or a GIF animation to represent you in an AR world and let other people find you.
Tell people about yourself using text, links and photos.
Your AR bubble will fly above you wherever you go and will be visible for others to discover within 402m radius.

We developed a dedicated shaders module using OpenGL to display water droplets that overlay an image from the phone camera in real time. The module is universal and was used throughout the different applications.
To implement geolocation we used PostGIS, a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL database. It allows us to save location coordinates to a common database across different apps.
For both Android and iOS app we used MVVM architecture with additional data binding in RxSwift for iOS.
Traces / Meego are covered by 3 layers of automatic tests.
