WEBAR COVERAGE MAP

No app? No problem. Enter WebAR! T-Mobile sought out Gravity Jack’s services to create a one-of-a-kind WebAR experience to be featured in T-Mobile stores throughout the country. Since there is no need to download an app, T-Mobile customers simply scan a marker within the store to prompt custom Augmented Reality content. Once scanned with the phone’s camera app, users are taken to a web page that places a dynamic 3D T-Mobile coverage map directly in the store!
