Seattle Tech Quote of the Week

“Our 3D maps sit at the intersection of the digital and physical worlds, enabling users to access both simultaneously. We see it as a globally connected experience. This is an opportunity to create an exciting new world and bring back the emotional connection and sense of belonging that has been stripped from today’s social networks.” — Tony Tran, founder and CEO of Peer 

Peer acquired Zenly engineers. Peer is developing a gamified social networking app. To fast-track its solution’s development, Peer acquired a team of engineers from Zenly, a public map application. The engineers built Zenly’s artificial intelligence-powered 3D maps. Peer’s solution incorporates AI, augmented reality and blockchain tech to produce a planet-scale 3D map that delivers a game-like social experience. [Yahoo News]
