Scape

A software company creating a technology that allows augmented reality content and services to be tied to precise, real locations. It is located in London, England and was founded in 2016.

Scape is a London-based company that is building technology for the augmented reality and virtual reality industries. The software uses computer vision and is meant to enable camera devices to recognize their surroundings.

Product

The company's software development kit, called "ScapeKit", builds and references 3D maps in its cloud system, which is accessible to augmented and virtual reality devices that use the product. The maps are built from more than 2 billion images from cameras. The camera's location is determined with its visual positioning system, which uses geographical positioning systems, to make a map of the environment. The technology is capable of mapping places within centimeters of their actual locations. Users can then build their augmented reality in real outdoor settings in London. Anything can be added to the user's familiar settings, such as trees, robots, or UFOs.

ScapeKit is available for use in London, England and is compatible with iOS and Android devices. The company has stated that it plans to expand to other major global cities.
