XTEND is a factory of ideas, a creative studio in Oslo (Norway) that produces and distributes state of the art Extended Reality (XR).
It is our mission to create unique interactive experiences and groundbreaking XR applications that will offer endless possibilities to both consumers and businesses.
We work with incredible new immersive technologies that will create a whole new industry and a new way of relating to information.
XR technology, and especially Augmented Reality (AR) is a great fit for hotels and their guests because it addresses two primary traveler needs: information and entertainment. Hotels are also leveraging AR behind the scenes to lend those same benefits to internal decision-making.
Brochures, websites and other marketing materials are all about bringing a property to life for a potential guest, but AR technology takes that concept up several notches.

Staying in a hospital can be a scary experience for kids, but a little distraction can make it less stressful. According to studies conducted by Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, UK, distracted patients have an easier time with their appointments and require less pain medication.

XTEND will develop a portal (work title: XRH01) designed to keep children entertained—and calm—from the moment they check in.
The portal features several applications, like games for kids to play during their downtime, but its most important features are designed to coach young patients through treatments. Short animations walk them through procedures like blood tests so that when the time comes, the situation will feel less intimidating.
In 2018 197.146 children between 0 and 9 years (incl healthy new-borns) and 158.713 between 10 and 19 years have been patient in a hospital in Norway (source: statistisksentralbyrå).
