During the show, Binary Bubbles will exhibit PopBase’s set of content management tools for creators to deploy customizable, personalized character avatars, as well as the ability of these digital assets to engage audiences through gamified experiences which can be monetized through mobile ads and purchases on the PopBase app. The Bubbles team filed patents for the workflow and a digital character as a dynamic data format and built proprietary tools to allow creators to manage their brand.
The company is working on a variety of game templates to allow creators to continue expanding their portfolio, brand and reach and have already partnered with established creators like Larry Bundy, MarzGurl, Willbits and others for closed Beta. At their booth, Binary Bubbles will exhibit more live demonstrations of both the creator and consumer experiences, using PopBase’s codeless authoring tools and consumer platform.
“We are honored and excited to be part of Startup Battlefield’s 2018 cohort. The enthusiasm and creativity shown by attendees who are looking to utilize our platform for a wide variety of use cases across different sectors is overwhelming and encouraging to say the least.”
Says Lisa Wong, Binary Bubbles CEO,
“In the future, digital characters, whether it’s a favorite influencer or SpongeBob SquarePants, will interact, engage, and assist you in your real life. The first step to making those interactions responsive and relevant, is through play. Play has always been the best and easiest way to learn and connect with others. And we at Binary Bubbles believe that PopBase will pave the way to this future.”
