MINI Singapore – the dangers of texting and driving

17 hours ago by Mark Comments

Accidents involving drivers on the phone have been on the rise, especially those who text and drive. Of all distracted driving activities, texting has the longest eyes-off-the-road time. MINI Singapore wants to help spread the word against this bad habit.

Mood-based ad serving. Why not?

on February 1, 2014 by Ana Comments

Very rarely any of us likes to see an ad on our mobile phone. But what if the mood is right? That’s exactly what Apple is experimenting with. The next-gen ad serving will look at things like time of the day, location, current activity, mood, heart rate, blood pressure, adrenaline level, body temperature and other parameters and determine our emotional state. For this, of course, we need  a wearable tech device, but Apple’s already working on that too.

Advertisers should be thrilled, but then again, knowing Apple, it’s probably going to be a pricey, closed system.

And finally, make your print ad interactive (no, not with QR codes)

Wired’s January 2014 issue has a surprise for you inside. It comes in the form of an interactive Moto X ad, which enables magazine readers to customize Motorola’s Moto X’s color. 11 LED lights stand for 11 possible phone colors.

The next level of content and commerce integation

on December 21, 2013 by Ana Comments

Is there a better shopping context for Leica camera than Instagram? Leica clearly thinks the answer is no. Instagram is place of budding photographers, photo enthusiasts, and just those in love with a good photo (among others). All of them can now purchase this camera right there on Instagram, without ever leaving their newsstream.

Actually, it’s not as simple as that, but smart people will probably find a way to make it better. As of now, purchasing is enabled by Arco (a tech startup) in combination with following Leica Brazil’s Instagram account. After this, all it takes to become a proud owner of the LeicaC is to comment “purchase” on one of the account’s photos. You can see the ad here.

Nike True City

on January 14, 2010 by Mark Comments

Nike True City is a really cool iPhone app where you can find some info about different european cities, provided by some “Nike experts”, but leaving it open for you to update the content with your own suggestions of what a “true city” should be. Aditionally the app reveals where new Nike events are taking place, where there are secret QR-codes in each city (i love they include even a QR-Code reader inside the application) or even new Nike products to be launched, creating a really interesting community where you can be rewarded on your own or by sharing to the rest of users. Here’s a little trailer to the app:
