Buffer Busters get away in an Urban Dash

on August 14, 2011 by Tim Comments

Augmented Reality games are heating up in different parts of the world: As MINI’s Getaway had proven that Stockholm can unite in a hunt for an elusive MINI Countryman, New Balance in New York and Vodafone in Germany are following in their (running) footsteps. The aim: use smartphones to move people into stores. Read more…

You LOL, you lose

on August 12, 2011 by Tim Comments

British flavoured milk brand Frijj (pronounced ‘fridge’) introduce us to a new web sport: keep a straight face while watching LOL videos. The site exposes you to a range of videos, ranging from cute to fail to painful. Using face tracking it registers your reactions, so you better suppress your giggles. As the title suggest, as soon as you smile the stream ends and you are out of the game. Read more…

Uniqlo New York City Voices

on August 10, 2011 by Tim Comments

From fashion brand Uniqlo comes another beauty in terms of interface, design and atmospheric soundscape, this one spreading the word about the opening of their Manhattan flagship stores. “NYC voices” are charming portraits of 13 creative, influential and socially active New Yorkers, telling us about their work and life in the city. Rather than bleating about the shops themselves, the brand politely pays tribute to the city it is about to become part of – very Japanese I must say. Read more…

MTV gives a shit

on August 10, 2011 by Tim Comments

Next time you drop your pants and take a dump, you can also show that you really care. Use “those moments of God-given contemplation while on the toilet” to make a difference. For pandas and whales, against overfishing, diseases, floods, riots or hunger. And since smart phones have changed how we poop anyway, why not use social media to tell your friends about it?

National Geographic: Remember 911

on August 6, 2011 by Tim Comments

Few world events really stick in our collective memory, like the moon landing, the Fall of the Berlin Wall and September 11, 2001. As the 10th anniversary of the attack nears, National Geographic is asking its Facebook audience: “Where were you?”. Your personal story is placed on a map and additionally shared on your wall.

Boeing 747: touch and explore

on August 5, 2011 by Tim Comments

Boeing have launched a web experience of their best seller, the 747. More than 20,000 photos were stitched together to form a high resolution, 17-gigapixel multidimensional photograph version of the plane. Essentially it is a demo for Microsoft Windows Touch, Azure and Silverlight, with a bit of Kinect and Surface thrown in for good measure. Read more…

Move, Learn and Eat

on August 5, 2011 by Tim Comments

Remember WalkUSA’s animation of the Walk Across America guy? These mates here have walked across the globe and assembled their shots into one continuous experience of our beautiful world. The three films have exploded on Vimeo, add to the view count of Move, Learn and Eat and wait for them to appear (modified) in an ad for STA Travel (specialist for student travel) soon. Read more…

Challenge the Fastlane with Sony Ericsson Xperia

on August 4, 2011 by Tim Comments

If you thought Daft Punk’s gear looked cool, wait till you see these skaters don some funky cardboard helmets. Their only chance of seeing ahead is a visor in the shape of a Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo phone. Don’t try this at home, kids! Read more…

Nokia N8 – Gulp

on August 4, 2011 by Tim Comments

After scoring big with the smallest animation ever shot (Dot), the Nokia N8 campaign returns with the largest stop motion set ever built. Their world record attempt called Gulp was shot on a real Nokia N8 and is the beautiful story of a fisherman being gobbled up by a monstrous fish – and luckily being spat out again. The whole endeavor is pretty massive. Read more…

HTC ChaCha pushes your Facebook button

on July 31, 2011 by Tim Comments

I guess there is no better post to follow my previous one about staying off Facebook. HTC’s smartphone ‘ChaCha’ wants you to share like there’s no tomorrow, simply by pressing the magic f-button at the bottom of its keyboard. And naturally HTC are promoting this feature within facebook itself. Install their app and ‘see what happens when you push it’ - the result is an extreme version of your own facebook existence. Have a look at my own version in which my dumb profile photo fits serendipitously. Read more…
