Product/Service Summary

goAktive is working towards creating the next generation of e-sports using games (think popular games like Snakes & Ladders, Monopoly, Ludo, RISK AND AR/VR enabled games going forward) with simple body weight aktivities integrated into the game play.

On a high level the product will be an offering that integrates
• Multiple games playable between real players and bots
AND
• A mobile activity tracker/measurer (enabled to measure standard aktivities like walking & running AND complicated movements like Pushups)
Overall- the product will be an integration of modules focused on games, computer vision, AR and VR and refined through ML/Deep learning

Current status
- Service currently delivered through short events with clients
- A prototype due in 8 weeks will be able to take players through a simple game and the vision piece- and eventually take the manual intervention by goAktive out of picture!
