SpotFANS – an AR Experience for Indie Music

SpotFans Homepage

You never know who you might meet when you go on a business trip. Because of this, you should always be prepared to start up a conversation with those around you, well those who are interested in talking; please do not disturb your neighbors.

During our flight to PAX West, I met an executive of a software company named Lee Milazzo. As the flight was landing, I learned that his team was working on a project that would bring augmented reality utilizing an individual’s phone to music, gaming, sports, and hopefully a lot more.

Since then, Lee, Ray Shingler, and their team have explored different ways they could utilize their technology to make SpotFANS more impactful. But what is SpotFANS and what is the teams’ goal behind the experience?

Below, we will be sharing with you Spot Fans Mission to bring exposure to the Indie music scene. You read their Mission Statement down below. Additionally, you can read the interview we did with the creators of Spot Fans here.
