MLB to Utilize Apple's iOS 7 iBeacon for Interactive Stadium Experience

MLB is shaking hands with Apple to give its supporters an experience of a lifetime. Previously, iOS 6 users were given passbook ticketing. Now, it has something special reserved for users of iOS 7. MLB’s At the Ballpark app will get the iOS7 iBeacon treatment. This is meant to aid spectators as they come close to low-power Bluetooth transmitters in the environs of the stadium

The moment you come close to the entry venue, you will get seating information. Get within hearing distance of various points and you will receive videos or discount offers. Until now only the Mets are displaying the feature at the Citi Field. However, with the passage of time other teams are bound to do likewise. 

Interactivity is the name of the game. And with MLB season about to go into action, this added feature will be like a spark that will light up the surrounding darkness. Have your ticket’s barcode displayed upon access to the stadium. Know which hotdog is available at what rate for snacking on in between game-play. 

What this application does is convert the stadium into a live museum of wonders to marvel at in wonderment. A series of different experiences lie in store for users of this app. The custom-made stadium will make the MLB series a virtual Disneyland-like phenomenon if it catches on.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
