REMINIZ is an application that allows you to recognize celebrities via your smartphone and gives you access to all the information of these celebrities.

You point your phone (camera) at the celebrity. You get his name, biography, latest events, tweets. You can also buy his movies, songs and tickets for his events.

It works on your TV screen, in magazines, and even on a real person.
REMINIZ significantly reduces search and offers a new user experience.

4G makes it possible to make optimal use of the service: sending the photo and then retrieving information from the various sites (Wikipedia, Twitter, Allociné, etc.) are much faster thanks to the 4G speed. It also allows a better user experience because it no longer perceives the loading time of HD content (trailers or full films).
