Abstract:
    This is an Augmented Reality (AR) based application for social media usage and content sharing by interacting with surrounding objects, in real time, through existing camera based devices.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Our Application addresses multiple issues, keeping in mind the UN SDG #12 that is ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’, paper and other material is wasted on making billboards, advertisements, and sign boards which causes pollution and money wasting especially for marketing agencies.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   For the marketing companies, this can be a game changer in saving costs and utilizing creative ways to market their products. On the other hand, everyday users will get to interact and share their happenings in a fun manner increasing their interest in the existing platform of the application.
How will the solution works
    User will be required to login with his/her account to use the app. After authentication, user can add the objects by selecting the type and the content details. user's current location will be compared with stored objects' location in background to check if any nearby object is available and will get the notification. The available object will be rendered on the camera screen of the app along with the details put by the other user (details can be text, image, comment, symbol etc.).
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In general scenario, social media platforms that currently exist, come as our competition but due to the unique selling point of our application (the augmented reality and location based features) give the whole application a distinctive value proposition.
