About LightPlay: LightPlay is a Geo Messenger App that allows users to drop location-based messages anywhere they want! Connect with people around the world in an entirely different way.

Message types include text, images, audio recordings, videos, weblinks, user-generated augmented reality, and libraries of augmented reality.

How to deploy geo-messages on LightPlay

  • Choose your message type and location: Pin your message where you want it, and drop it on the map!
  • Choose user access and discoverability: You decide if your message is for the public, or specifically for the users you select.
  • Choose your message icon: Each message has an icon that shows where it is on the map. Choose between a generic icon, an icon with your profile thumbnail, or an icon that is a thumbnail of the content type.
  • Set your time limit: Select a time frame for your message, anywhere from one minute to thirty days!
  • Set a geofence to limit access by location: A geofence is like a digital fence around your message that a user must be within to open your message. You can optionally enable a geofence on or off. If enabled, set the geofence perimeter size anywhere from 10ft to 100ft!
  • Edit your message: You can change and update your message settings anytime.

This month's theme: The American Reality

Synopsis: The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States, the set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, as well as upward social mobility for the family and children, achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers. The American Reality is the experience of Americans (African Americans) and how they have navigated through the barriers to attain success, prosperity, and upward social mobility for the family and children.

This month's featured creator: Camille Kelly (TikTok influencer and UCLA student)

Afrofuturism: We are here now and are here to stay

Synopsis: Series of TikToks and Blog Posts also deployed on LightPlay Map interface by UCLA student/Influencer Camille Y'vonne Kelly

The absence of black people in science fiction media (literature, film, and music) is implied genocide. Black bodies, stories, and impact are apparent today and are here to stay. Our contributions have already been whitewashed and, at times, misrepresented. Afrofuturism/afro surrealism gives due respect and recognition to the current and future impact of African American innovation, technological advancements, and creativity.

Frequently Asked Question:

What are the location and time?

  • The location is anywhere you have a smartphone, internet connection, and the LightPlay app (https://lightplay.app). The drop will occur on that day at a time to be announced (we're still arguing about time zones 🤣).
