Hi Steve, thanks for sharing Matter Lens with the Travel Massive community!

Iโ€™m curious about the back story, how did you make the transition from your previous startup Neuwly (an app for real-time video tours) to Matter Lens? Are you working with the same customers and users, or is there a shift?

I love this kind of tech, but what are your thoughts on reducing the friction of installing an app to enhance a local visitor experience? Does the business case favour premium experiences (eg you paid $50 to visit a modern art museum, or a luxury hotel), or mass visitor experiences (eg a public art festival or sculpture walk)?

I admire your innovation, keep it up!

Thanks for your questions, Ian!

We actually weโ€™re building something similar to Matter Lens before launching Neuwly Live but then when COVID hit and the tourism world shut down we had to pivot and created Neuwly Live to stay active. Once the world was back in action we moved back to our original vision armed with more insights into how to build a better product.

Installing apps can be a tough sell for some people for sure, but to properly create what weโ€™re building we have to utilize the technology provided by Apple / Google. To reduce the amount of friction between downloading the app and experiencing the AR created by venues we removed the requirement of creating an account. Anyone can download Matter Lens and experience any augmented content immediately but if youโ€™d like to create and post your own content in AR thatโ€™s where youโ€™d have to create an account.

We have a big pipeline of ideas and are currently raising our next round to build them out! What you see is just the tip of the iceberg. I absolutely love this industry and couldnโ€™t be more excited to be a part of it.
