Mobile Data sharing simplified
Hoccer now supports dragging
In September 2009, presented for the first time, Hoccer has been downloaded by more than 230,000 Android users. LG preinstalls the app to its first Android device, "Ally". To measure up to the success within the iPhone App Store, the user interface has been overhauled. The puristic, simplified interface promotes the intuitive handling; threedimensional frame and translucent effects match the look and feel of Apple products. The developers from ART+COM also improved the overall usability. Now, the user receives detail information about the status of the transfer, the operation is based much more on the interaction with real objects and flows generally smoother.
A typical situation in which Hoccer simplifies communication is when distributing a presentation directly after the lecture. With Hoccer the digital files are just thrown into the audience by performing a motion as throwing a frisbee. People standing nearby can then raise their phones like catching a ball to receive the data. For the exchange of contact details or even photos taken at an event, the new "dragging" function is used, as it ensures the onetoone communication. A third person trying to gain access through the server, will immediately abort the transfer.
The Berlin studio for new media design, is specialized in translating content into spatial environments using interactive media to create vivid experiences. It's projects range from interactive applications, exhibits and installations to media façades, immersive scenographies and rooms. To our works belongs amongst others the Volkswagen exhibition on sustainability "Level Green" where ART+COM was responsible for scenography and media design. Back in 2008 the new BMW Museum opened up and since then we received many international awards for the media installations we created in Munich. One year before the Museum of Natural History in Berlin presented it's new exhibition. ART+COM accounted for recreation and new media.
