Discover NFTs in the wild.
We all had that invisible ‘friend’ growing up. The Hobbes to our Calvin. “ghosting” on PicPocket’s Discover platform is a bit like that – except that, with a mobile device, and a little bit of coaching, anyone can view all the digital objects and NFTs we/you hide in plain sight.
How does it work? Let’s say I have a photo, a video, any media or smart-contract – and I want to leave a copy of it floating somewhere for others to find. Maybe I’m a huge brand who’s promoting a new product or a major-league sports team hell-bent on driving fan-engagement. Or maybe I’m a first-time For Sale by Owner who’s looking to save herself the six-percent sales commission when they sell their home. I launch my camera, drag an NFT into the field of view and manipulate its position to just where I want it and… <SNAP!> It’s as simple as taking a photo.
We know what digital object/NFT you chose and how and where you placed it within your field of view. We also have your location information and both the yaw, pitch, roll and orientation of your mobile phone or tablet. When it’s all said and done, we’ll apply sophisticated algorithms against the picture you just took to determine how your “ghosted” object overlaps key objects in the background. And up to our servers it goes.
With all that good data, it’s pretty easy to guide the next person who happens by, how to orient their device to be able to see your ‘ghosted’ NFT.
The black & white image in the golden frame? Those were the Hollywood Hills back in the day when Model T’s roamed the countryside. The color photo just above it? That same stretch of road sometime over the last ninety days. Now, whenever someone finds themselves enjoying that same point of view, discover.app can deliver them an experience that puts a smile on their face.
Floating in front of their very eyes, a newly minted NFT – a photo, video, audio file or smart contract immortalized on the blockchain – ready for engagement.
Whether it’s a snapshot harkening back in time to days long gone, digital-signage describing a historical landmark, a clue for a scavenger hunt or just you marking your territory like the wild animal you are… ghosting is as flexible as it is fun. And when you combine ghosting with PicPocket’s geofencing technologies, the possibilities are endless.
So get off that couch! You’ve got a whole new world to explore!
Places to go. People to see. NFTs to view and share.™
