Seizing the opportunities of immersive reality
Next generation experiences are not just a passing fad. Voice assistants, together with immersive technologies such as virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, will change how we live and work.
When fully harnessed, next gen technologies will be ubiquitous and transformative. Right now, there’s an opening for businesses to use these technologies to delight customers and build a competitive lead. But how do you ensure you’re building tomorrow’s business necessity and not today’s novelty?
Blue Fountain Media delivers the insights, customer empathy, and tech capabilities to execute strategically on next gen technologies. Adopting an approach that leverages agile design and lean innovation, we help businesses move cutting-edge products to market quickly and with precision
What makes a strong next gen technology partner?
Technical skills and methodologies matter, but the real challenge when building a next gen experience that counts is defining the problem you’re trying to solve. That’s why your partner needs:
A strategic mindset. If immersive technologies are going to fuel your growth, you need a partner who can accurately and efficiently determine whether a concept is a true product-market fit.
Speed and agility. A partner needs proven processes for agile delivery, enabling you to “fail fast” without a massive investment of time and money, and build and scale viable concepts at speed.
Audience empathy. An effective partner will not only solve real customer problems, they’ll do so in a way that connects to people’s motivations, desires, and frustrations.

Our next gen technology development process
Preliminary Audience + Competitor Research
Addressing customer and market needs
Powerful user experiences hinge on knowing your audience. We help you find business challenges that might be solved with AR, VR, MR, or voice-enabled technologies, as well as the opportunities that emerge as a result.
When we find them, we study your market meticulously, exploring every nuance of customer attitudes, behavior, and interests to find where customer needs – practical and emotional – might intersect with today’s immersive technologies.
Making the impossible possible
Empathy-driven experiences come alive during the design process. Using a design thinking approach, our designers collaborate with you in 4-day sprints, bringing together strategists, designers, and members of your team to develop innovative applications of next-gen technologies.
Digital Product Prototyping
Working towards the MLP
With design thinking setting the direction, we employ an agile process to build working prototypes that undergo extensive user testing. Validating features and capabilities, we use this test-and-learn approach to refine the digital product and determine whether it’s one people will ultimately love.
The goal of this process is to develop a Minimum Lovable Product (MLP) – a product with functionality people will continue to use and enjoy day after day, with the least amount of effort and expense.
AR + VR + MR Development
Creating the immersive experience
During development, engineers, product managers, and UX designers continue to collaborate, building on the MLP to create a fully functional, final digital product ready for market positioning.
Whether we’re creating VR apps, AR apps, or an MR experience, our cross-disciplinary team can rapidly develop and scale digital products for commercial application.
Voice-Enabled Product Development
Voice has the potential to deliver intuitive and practically frictionless experiences. Our lean innovation approach enables us to get voice-enabled products into customer hands quickly and refine them iteratively. We use our time-tested design thinking process to create user-centric experiences that help people perform tasks, find information, and get assistance.
