Title
(EN) System, method, and apparatus for avatar-based augmented reality electronic messaging
Abstract
(EN)

A system, method, and apparatus for avatar-based augmented reality electronic messaging provides for a plurality of avatars and avatar customization options, wherein a user may customize an avatar in an augmented reality environment, add audio file data, and send the customized avatar and the audio to a recipient as a customized avatar message. In some embodiments, the customized avatar message may be sent as a message bubble notification. The user may receive the customized avatar message and play it back in the recipient's augmented reality viewer. In some embodiments, the present invention may provide for bubble notifications and third-party avatars within the present invention's augmented reality field of view that may serve as starting points for geogamification functions, may direct users to an e-commerce platform, or may link to other content, such as an audio file, a video file, or social media content.
