An ad agency, several musicians, and an app developer have collaborated on Lucozade Energy’s latest campaign, creating drink bottles that launch videos through an augmented reality (AR) smartphone app.

Guinness Creates AR Game To Decorate Pins With Blippar

Guinness ventured into augmented reality with the holiday game “Decorate Your Pint” last year.
