This week at interactive lunch we decided to forgo a standard presentation and used that time to take a look at other interactive work. It is just as important to take a bit of time and see what others are doing, as it is to strengthen our own skills. Below is a quick recap of the presentation- enjoy!
Samsung Tweet Wrap- Create wrapper paper covered in your tweets!
Pro: They will actually send you your own free roll.
Con: Nothing much to do with Samsung
Yahoo Bus Stop Derby- interactive touch screen games at bus stops
Pro: Play with your friends in other neighborhoods- awesome
Con: Touch screen at a bus stop (germs!) and screen can be a little tough to interact with
Converse “The Sampler” iPhone app
Pro: Shop for converse from your iphone and “try them on”
Con: idea of the “try them on” is great- but actually you still have to line up your leg with the shoe
The App store- its free!
Swedish Armed Forces- Recruitment Campaign
Pro- interesting use of a webcam to help test agility
Con- NSFW- not in the dirty manner- just in the turn up the volume, turn on your webcam, and look like you are trapped in a glass box- mime style (actually that might be kind of fun to watch some else do it)
QRWrapping Paper- The world’s most interactive wrapping paper
Pro: QR codes connect to funny little videos
Con: I can’t direct it to my own site of choosing- no custom qrwapping paper
Nespresso- amazing motion site for coffee machine company to feature its new variations for coffee pods
Pro: They have games you can play- like the almond gun- motion is very well done
Con: Seems like a very large spend that frankly doesn’t look like it is affecting the brand in any huge way. The intro sequence- while cool- takes forever. I didn’t make it to vanilla
Interactive Puppet Prototype with Kinect- another amazing use for the new kinect
Pro: giant funky emu-style bird
Con: not many- but the bird squawk get a bit old on the 10th time
PsykoPaint- Painting for those that are artistically challenged
Pro: upload your photo and use the special effects tools to make it look awesome
Con: if you are Mac savvy- you are probably laughing at me right now
Unevolved Brands- Take the brand down to basic circles and colors-see if you can guess them
Pro: how smart you feel when you can figure one out without much thought
Con: There are no answers listed. Yep if one has you stumped- I guess you could try googling it?
Our motion team is pretty great- so I asked them to send me a couple of the best links of the moment
