In efforts to make the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games accessible to all, Youth and Sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin launched the KL SEA Games app earlier today.
The app, available on both Android and iOS, is part of the KL 2017’s digital platforms leading up to the games.
“The KL 2017 website is our main digital asset with 4 main thrusts. Registration platform, sales (tickets & mernchandise), information and news.” the minister explained.
“We’ve also got other social media assets, like the KL 2017 Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Do check them out.”
“With the app, you can have direct access to the live scores. Follow Malaysia as they win medal after medal after medal. You will also get an up-to-date schedule, latest news, city guide, and more.” the minister added.
Along with the app, the minister went on to unveil a ground-breaking feature that you will only see at the 2017 KL SEA Games.
“I’ve got something special to show you. This has never been done at the SEA Games level, or even the Olympics level.” the minister said, as he introduced the Augmented Reality Rimau (ARR).
With the ARR, when you scan markers at venues, a 3-D icon comes up, where you can find out live scores, medal tally, and more.
The 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games will take place from 19th August until 31st August. Visit KL 2017 for more information.
