Flam possesses a unique advantage in the emerging XR content space: an exclusive patent designed for presenting hyper-personalized content. This patented system leverages advanced algorithms to discern context from various data sources, including digital media, sensors, and user profiles. With this context, the system then presents augmented reality content, meticulously tailored to the user's individual context, superimposing it onto a target object in the digital media. This isn't just about augmented reality; it's about a deeply personalized experience that bridges the physical and digital realms. As Flam pushes the boundaries of 3D XR content and camera-first consumption, this proprietary technology ensures we deliver not just immersive but also intimately personal experiences, setting us apart in the marketplace.
Flam has also applied for patents on AI mocap and flam scannable codes (flam scannable codes are like snap or spotify codes/ inhouse developed Flam unique identifiers).
