National Geographic Channel Invites Shoppers To Engage With Augmented Reality Installation
Hundreds of mall-goers are mesmerized as projected images of the world of National Geographic are brought to life right before their eyes.
The National Geographic Channel has recently unveiled a heartwarming campaign that uses augmented reality (AR) to project images of animals, dinosaurs, astronauts, and even ambient environments amongst numerous curious shoppers in a mall in Hungary. To engage in the AR experience, participants stood at the center of an empty plane that featured the National Geographic logo. In front of them was a large LED wall that showcased the AR experience; images of velociraptors hopping, a leopard taking a stroll and pausing for a quick nap, a looming thunderstorm, a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex, and a solo astronaut on a space mission, among others, popped up for people to interact with. Watch as shoppers are captivated by the AR experience:
The live augmented reality experience was developed by Appshaker in partnership with Vertigo Digital to create a unique way for people to interact with National Geographic Channel’s content from around the world.
During a webinar on Thursday July 13th at 10am, the PSFK research team will be presenting findings from our most recent report, Future of Manufacturing. For this project, we looked at how brands and organizations can meet elevated consumer needs and combat increased market competition by leveraging connected technologies that give total insights to manage their end-to-end operations and the opportunity to integrate cutting-edge technologies to reinvent supply chains.
Christina Agapakis, creative director at Ginkgo Bioworks, discussed how she uses her background in science and collaborates with engineers, designers, artists and social scientists to explore the many unexpected connections between microbiology, technology, art and popular culture.
