Niantic started with a focus on AR games, including Ingress and Pokémon Go. Niantic has a history of viewing the world differently, which drives their technology, and sees a future where their technology paves the way for new interactions; highlighting movement, exploration, and shared experiences as people connect with their environment and each other through technology.
Niantic has built the world’s only planet-scale augmented reality platform – Lightship – for current and future generations of AR hardware. The Niantic Lightship Platform is seen as a global operating system for applications that unite the digital world with the physical world. Niantic strives to build a new technological chapter that connects people where they are with what was there, is there, and will be there.
