Description

 

Convergence Toy Platform, PLAYHOUSE 

Founded in October of 2012 and based in Korea, SEMS GAMES is one of the fastest growing startups specialized in mobile games and 3d printing toys. SEMS GAMES provides a platform for users to play with digital toys on their mobile devices and bring them into reality.


Fintech startup Paycock announced that it would begin supplying Seoul City with a mobile payment service based on optical character recognition technology starting in June. The service allows stores to accept credit card payments through the company’s mobile application, Paygood, making it possible for payments to be made and accepted no matter the time or location of the payment participants. Seoul City will be providing the mobile application to merchants in the Namdaemun and Dongdaemun markets as part of its support program for small business owners.

Paycock’s payment application does not require a traditional card-reading device, as its OCR technology enables not only payment via physical credit and debit cards but also mobile application-based credit cards. This OCR technology, which is the product’s key technology, is accompanied by AI deep learning technology to prevent credit card fraud and theft.

As the application is highly convenient to use and guarantees the security of credit card transactions, it is expected to be widely adopted by small business owners, individuals working in the delivery business, and companies that employ traveling sales representatives. CEO Kwon Hae-won said, “Our product has been fully vetted in terms of security. It has passed the security tests and evaluations of companies recommended by the Korea Internet & Security Agency and the Financial Security Institute.”

Paycock has already signed MOUs with corporations and the governments of six countries, including the United States. Through its participation in K-Global@Moscow 2017, which is scheduled to be held on June 5, the company plans to seek out opportunities for it to enter the Russian and Northern European markets. Paycock receives support for its overseas marketing activities from the K-ICT Born2Global Centre, an organization affiliated with the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning.

 

 

 

 


Actual-size character figurines and houses designed via the convergence toy

platform Playhouse and printed out using a 3D printer.


 

Sems Games said on Nov. 7 that it will open its first pop-up store, called “Playhouse,”
in Seoul’s Hongdae area by the end of this year. 

At Playhouse, customers will be able to experience PLAP, a comprehensive and

innovative toy service developed by the company to enable simultaneous offline toy design/assembly and
online games via the Playhouse platform, after which the pop-up store was named.

The toy assembly process involves customers creating a self-developed or

“IP (intellectual property)” character, and printing it out using a 3D printer.
The assembly of IP characters, for example, could involve combining the body of Batman
with the head of Astro Boy.
The company’s objective is to allow customers to experience the joy of creating and
owning a one-of-a-kind toy that has been realized via 3D printing. 

These characters and Sems Games-designed houses can then be incorporated into the online games

to enable customers to create personalized virtual spaces.
Furthermore, all of the characters and houses can be made into physical figures through 3D printing. 

Sems Games CEO Ahn Jeong-hoon said, “The PLAP service will be attractive to not only children,

but single people in their 20s and 30s who enjoy toys as a hobby. If our first store is successful,
we plan to open a second store in Pangyo next year.”
