Onyx Beacon technology at Global Citizen Festival 2017
Without any doubts, we are living the time when technology has a real powerful impact in the way we live, work, learn or unwind. And it’s clear too that it is no going back to how it was before. Therefore, why not embrace the technology, adopt it and try to improve it? Our friends from L + R design and strategy agency are a good example of innovators when it comes to using new technology.
This year, they have used our beacons to create awesome experiences at the Global Citizen Festival held on The Great Lawn in New York’s Central Park. According to them, every attendee had downloaded the Global Citizen app and over 7,000 actions were taken through the powerful combination of the mobile app and Onyx beacon technology, which helped make a positive impact on some of the world’s biggest issues and reach the goal of creating a world free from extreme poverty by 2030.
“We did a comprehensive search for a hardware partner. It had to be economic and easy for our clients to operate. Our office is now filled with beautiful, sensor-integrated Beacons with all types of form factors. Onyx blended the required amount of durability, administration and clean aesthetic design that was perfect for the application. We look forward to integrating the hardware in future projects with our partners,” said Alex Levin, Co-founder at L + R agency
This again proves the versatility of the beacon technology, as well as the growth of the adoption rate among the users. We are happy to partner with such companies which try to generate a real impact throughout technology.
