A 3D reality mobile application has been launched for the upcoming European Games in Minsk this June from 21 to 30.

It was presented at a briefing on the use of IT at the European Games, held at the Teleport VR virtual reality park in the Belarusian capital on 28 May. Named SportAR, the new app will feature a 3D version of the official mascot, Lesik.

“Everyone can download the application to stay up to date with schedules and results and also to take cool photos with the mascot,” Oleg Zakharov, an executive from the software development company used for the app, Citrea Soft, said. “One can just open the app and focus the camera on a special mark.

“We have developed this app to capture not only seconds, points, results but also the emotions, which attract sport fans to such competitions,” also added.

The media were also briefed about the management system that will be used during the multi-sport event, which will help in the organisation of transport, logistics, accreditation and accommodation.
