CLEVR:  Social Discovery Engine

CLEVR unites all devices in an incredibly fragmented AR/VR market into a single social framework, addding a layer of discovery of content through viral channels. 

CLEVR has solved two problems….

1)  Solved Fragmentation and Social.  CLEVER brought a fragmented VR market and fragmented social landscape into one unified HUD and SDK.  As we have all heard time and time again, "mobile is fragmented."  Virtual Reality only magnifies the problem. CLEVR has the solution. First, we've reversed engineered our way into every VR platform and brought together the connectivity, all devices can now talk to each other.  Secondly, CLEVR has taken all of the various social networks you use (Facebook, Slack, WhatsApp, etc) and brought those APIs into one feed, one single HUD.  All of your social connections are now in one single view.


2)  Made VR content discoverable.  CLEVR displays what games and apps your friends are currently enjoying and playing AND on which platform.  We're creating an in-game HUD (SDK) for developers to use where players can pop up the CLEVR social network, within the content itself (games, movies, etc) thus allowing players to shout out to their friends on their social graph and invite them to the game.  Now VR content is discoverable through your social graph.


To the point, CLEVR is a social platform that unites all VR devices and allows users to discover new content (games, movies, any VR content).  A lot of buzzwords, yes. But every generation of platforms the same discoverability issues emerge. CLEVR is taking advantage of the black hole in the market and has taken first mover advantage. 



CLEVR has prenegotiated installs of its stand alone app, the social network for VR devices, released 2 months from now.  The SDK for developers to integrate into all VR/AR content comes 2 months after.
