NYU IDM Grad Adlan Ramly announced as a Finalist for Niantic’s Beyond Reality Competition!

Adlan Ramly, integrated digital media graduate student, along with his teammate were chosen as finalist for the Niantic Beyond Reality Developer Contest. Their project ExplorAR was one of ten chosen out of thousands of submissions to build an experience on top of the Niantic Real World Platform.

Niantic’s Real World Platform combines a world-scale persistent state engine, multiplayer AR, high-speed networking, geolocation data, and much more to create unique experiences that promote a sense of imagination and adventure.

Adlan and his teammate will get access to this world, a stipend, and a three-month period, with the goal of showing off their incredible work at a Demo Day in San Francisco, hosted by Niantic.

We’re really excited to see how it all goes!
