Wavy is a music/tech startup that we have to admit slipped through our net: an iPhone app using augmented-reality technology to create ‘experiences’ around music tracks. The idea was that it would collaborate with musicians on AR videos, which fans could then use to create their own clips for sharing.
Anyway, Wavy has now been acquired by a company called Ubiquity6, which is working on its own app combining AR and social features “to unlock new ways for people to connect in the physical spaces they care about”. On the Wavy deal: “Their team and technology will allow us to double down on the future of audio-based AR, a critical component of our mission to a enable a shared immersive reality on top of the physical world,” explained Ubiquity6 in a blog post. “Their focus on allowing musicians to easily create engaging musical AR experiences for thousands of users is a natural fit with our goal.”
