Buying a ticket for a sporting event at a venue you may not have been before can sometimes be a tricky affair and leave you with a not so good view from your purchase seat once you arrive.
Now Rukkus Seat360 is hoping to change this and provide you with a virtual reality view of your seat before you purchase a ticket. The Seat360 application has been designed by Rukkus and lets users see a panoramic 360 degree view from the seat they are looking to purchase a ticket for before any cash changes hands.
The company is currently partnered with stadiums that host NBA, NHL, NFL, and MLB games, as well as offering a number of concert venues.
The Seat360 functionality utilizes gyroscope driven panoramic 360° seat views, allowing users to fully experience their seat location first-hand before final purchases are made. The seamless and user friendly application also includes:
– Paperless mobile entry via your smartphone for major league professional sports and large live music venues
– Ability to easily share and send tickets to your friends within the app
– Apple’s 3D Touch technology to find ideal tickets in the most efficient manner
– Two-click checkout for fast and secure purchases insured by a 100% buyer guarantee
– iPhone 6s/6s+ optimization and iPad compatibility
– Google Cardboard integration
– Data persistence that learns user’s search behavior and provides ‘smart’ results
Manick Bhan, CEO/CTO of Rukkus explains :
This immersive, virtual reality functionality is the single biggest innovation in the ticket buying space since the first seat map was introduced. Standard seat view photos or renderings are a step in the right direction, but still leave much to the imagination. An interactive panorama tells the whole story and Seat360 utilizes virtual reality in a practical way, giving customers the opportunity to experience their seat before they buy.
