Ring the bell to chat with Santa like never before! Watch as he appears in the sky, descends, and begins a unique, personalized conversation.
At Niantic, we're pushing the boundaries of augmented reality to create experiences that blend the digital and physical worlds in enchanting ways. This holiday season, we invite you to a special encounter with the jolliest figure of all, Santa Claus, in a magical experience that blends WebAR with the power of Generative AI.
Introducing 'Ask Santa Anything', a captivating WebAR encounter that brings the magic of the North Pole directly to you. Powered by Niantic 8th Wall’s innovative technology and Inworld AI's Character Engine, this experience allows you to interact with Santa in a way that's both personal and extraordinary. Watch in awe as the sky transforms and Santa, in his sleigh, descends to have a one-on-one conversation with you, driven by the power of Inworld AI’s Character Engine.
This immersive experience is a heartwarming bridge between the holiday spirit and cutting-edge WebAR. Developed in partnership with Wonderment by Design, 'Ask Santa Anything' leverages 8th Wall’s Sky Effects + World Tracking and Inworld AI's Character Engine. Santa is not just an animated character; he's a responsive, conversationally intelligent figure who can discuss holiday lore, share yuletide joy, and bring a touch of North Pole wonder to your world.
Designed for broad accessibility, this browser-based experience demonstrates the accessibility of WebAR. Whether on smartphones, tablets, or computers, 'Ask Santa Anything' offers a seamless, engaging interaction across multiple devices, embodying Niantic's vision of a responsive web that adapts to an evolving device ecosystem.
