It was our pleasure to be the technology sponsor of the award presentation ceremony of the 8th “BEST OF THE BEST AWARDS”, held by squarefoot.com.hk under the iProperty Group on 26th of May 2017. Organizers and elites from property industry utilized the AR technology provided by SnapPop.
By using SnapPop, award-wining property projects can be shown in three-dimensional form. The AR (Augmented Reality) technique of SnapPop strengthened the interactivity of the ceremony by enriching the user experience. The event itself also became more memorable, and the feedbacks from the guests were overwhelmingly positive.
The four-days Mobile World Congress this year had been successfully held in early March in Barcelona. SnapPop exhibited as a Hong Kong representative and a local mobile apps developer at Hong Kong Technology Pavilion, supported by the sponsorship from InvestHK. We displayed SnapPop in the exhibition, along with the application of its Augmented Reality functions. This impressed the users a lot by improving their user experiences with posters, packages, and other offline marketing materials. Chief Information Officer of the Hong Kong Government (OGCIO), Allen Yeung, JP, along with officials from HKSTP, InvestHK and Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) visited our booth.

Thanks to continuous trust and support by Ms. Josephine Siao (蕭芳芳), the chairman of End Child Sex Abuse Foundation, we are so proud of the official launch of this interactive e-learning platform in the week of sex education in April 2015.
This is a funny and inspiring educational masterpiece, while the main storyline and game are introduced by one super guy and one super girl whom will be acted by the voice of Mr. Hacken Lee (李克勤) and Ms. Joyce Cheng (鄭欣宜). Cooperated with ECSAF, we have developed a web platform that can facilitate primary schools to participate in ECSAF’s 5 days Child Sexual Abuse Prevention program. Through videos, mini-games and a configurable avatar system with accessories store, children ranging from primary 1 to primary 6 can learn how to protect themselves from sexual abuse. Since each student under each primary school is given a web portal account to play, their stored points targeting to exchange for more accessories for the avatars, can be well managed in our developed Content Management System (CMS), in which is good for further analytical purpose.
We are very grateful to have gained Josephine’s appreciation and precious encouragement on our work on animation and web portal development. And Joy Aether hopes that the child abuse cases will soon disappear in this world.
