Why we did it ?

 

 

Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.

Unlike Pokemon GO, which is using GPS data to display Pokemons based on your geolocation, Christmas AR is using a printed picture, called a marker, to locate, sizeorient and display the 3D Nativity scene in the real world.

 

  

These markers allow you to use our Nativity scene as a real one: you will be able to choose the size that will fit best in the dedicated place in your home and the experience you want to share with your loved ones.

We used last generation motion capture technology to reproduce the most realistic animations

Motion capture refers to recording actions of human actors, and using that information to animate digital character models in 3D computer animation. One of its most famous use is for sports game, as football, to reproduce perfectly the super stars tricks.

Markers

Our markers are the physical supports required to make the Nativity scene appear. They have different formats for different usage:

  • Postcards: the pocket format (A6, 10.5 cm x 14.8 cm), which is the Nativity scene to collect and to bring with you everywhere
  • Greeting cards: a mid-size format (A5, 14.8 cm x 21 cm) to spread Christmas magic around by sending the Nativity scene to your loved ones
  • Placemats: the biggest formats (A3, 42 cm x 29.7 cm and A2, 59.4 cm x 42 cm) to share magic moments with friends and family

Postcard and greeting card markers will be packaged by 5 units, each with a different design.

 

We need you as partners

For the markers production: to create the different visuals and to produce the print ready files.

For the worldwide distribution: our vision is that anywhere, anyone who would want our Nativity scene for this Christmas should be able to get it in a few days..

Risks and challenges

How can we be so ambitious with such a short time ?

The application is currently being finalized and we spent the last 6 months to prepare the worldwide production and distribution:
- We have an offer ready to sign from an international printing company that would cover multi continental production.
- We have accounts on several eCommerce platforms spread around the world and specific agreements with related fulfillment partners.

We sized the kickstarter target to be able to sign the production, storage and distribution of reasonable markers quantities for several key places in the world.

We will use this distribution network to fulfill your pledge, so you should get our markers for end of November the latest.
