Today we visited Tencent, one of the largest companies in both China and the world. What we found was truly incredible. We were able to go behind the scenes of a basketball game broadcast and see how they use VR and AR to fulfill their number one priority of enhancing the viewer’s experience. Afterwards, we learned all about the company. Before we mostly associated Tencent with WeChat, but we quickly learned that they are responsible for much more. They have also invested in a variety of other industries including video streaming, ride sharing, mobile payment, gaming, and social media. After learning about the company, we used software developed by a young Tencent employee to design a mobile website (linked below). Overall, we really enjoyed our time at Tencent and we look forward to what the next couple of days hold.
