This app is designed for use with a virtual reality headset (eg. Google Cardboard). It contains beautiful visuals, sound and interactivity to enhance your journey and ensure you are totally absorbed in content.
In the Industrial Internet of Things section of the app you'll assume the character of a forklift truck driver delivering important cargo to a container ship before being taken on an exhilarating flight to follow the goods' journey over sea and by air. Along the way you'll be able to hear, read and experience in 360 degree graphics the ways in which AT&T is transforming business with the Internet of Things.
In the Digital Life section off the app you'll see how one app integrates Home Automation, Energy Efficiency and Home Security. By hovering over the two rooms in the house you can preview the story held within; to choose a story to explore hold your selection for 2 seconds and you will be transported into that room.
- In the downstairs room, a story about 'grandma' whose caregiver can monitor her care remotely plays out around you.
- In the upstairs room, you can trigger benefits of the 'Go to Bed' program by looking around the room.
Once both rooms have been explored a third story is unlocked and a car will pull in to the garage, showing the benefits of a simpler life with connected car.
In the Connected Car section of the app you'll be able to interact with three stories about how AT&T is transforming cars into travelling Wi-Fi hotspots. By looking at and holding your gaze on the three available hotspots, you'll be able to:
- Explore the Glympse story and see its benefits
- Discover the wide range of apps available in an AT&T Connected Car
- Understand how a connected car updates its firmware automatically overnight
