DATE 2020

MATURITY LEVEL IN development

COMMISSIONED BY YAMAHA

POWERED BY Sound UD

Remote Cheerer allows supporters watching a game via TV, radio or live streaming to passionately support the players by sending cheers to an event venue from the comfort of their home.

The system was originally developed in consideration of hospitalized children, the disabled and elderly, supporters unable to attend stadiums… With the recent increase in coronavirus infections, this technology is attracting a great deal of attention as a way to maintain new lifestyles of social distancing.

The system has already commenced testing at selected MEIJI YASUDA J1, J2 and J3 LEAGUE matches.

food for thoughts ...

What about a more natural interaction for people to share there support?

What about communicating support with more than audio : what about visual feedback? ( Have you seen Fifteen Million Merits? )

How to give spectators a sense of the crowd supporting with them for more immersion?

Could this solution be applied for other than sport games? What could be the new features for those entertainment/manifestations?
