The spread of Covid-19 forced professional sports to hold games without audiences. As a result, even though they could still watch the game remotely, they couldn't feel close enough to the players they admired, which left the fans' feelings and affected the popularity of professional sports.
Focusing on "autograph", we developed an application that enable you to write an autograph directly on the video and sync and stream it in real time. By downloading the app on a tablet, all players could deliver their autographs to distant fans, regardless of environment or time restrictions. The immersive experience in which the player you admire writes an autograph for you in front of you created a new connection between the player and the fan, unlike the mass-produced autograph that seems to be real and unhearted like before.
We saw this adversity as an opportunity, and wondered if we could create a new opportunity to connect players and fans. Focusing on the "autograph" that has long been popular as a point of contact between players and fans in the real world. Using technology, we developed a new engagement medium that provides a valuable experience for this fan without limitation.
At the world's largest sports festival, which was held without audience, we delivered autographed videos filled with the joy and gratitude of medalists. It became memorial experience as fans could feel close through the smartphone screen wherever you are and created new enjoyment for fans. It wasn't just a message video, but the autograph reinforced fan's feelings toward the person they longed for by setting their autographs on smartphone wallpaper and carry it with them.
