David Murphy

Vodafone Germany has launched the Wo Guckst Du? (Where are you Watching?) channel on the junaio Augmented Reality (AR) platform.

The channel enables users to find somewhere nearby to watch World Cup matches on the TV. It shows the distance to the user’s current location, and offers information on capacity and directions to the venue. During the game junaio’s AR browser provides real-time game statistics based on IMPIRE's sports database. The service also enables users to make appointments on a web-portal or via Facebook to watch a match together, share the location and add further descriptions or comments.

During the game, junaio’s Football Channel offers real-time statistics such as goals, shots on goal, corner kicks, off-sides, penalties, fouls, etc., For users watching the game in the stadium, the team line-ups can be displayed, overlaid onto the football field.
