Pepsi Max freaked out waiting bus passengers with these ‘unbelievable’ events happening right next to them. Say no more, watch the film. Read more…

It’s hard to draw a bottom line under this festival attracting beyond 50,000 attendees. With all these exclusive panels (yes, including a few dud ones), in-depth interviews and challenging presentations to choose from, naturally YOUR SXSW is not going to be MY SXSW. Add to it the people you happen to meet when queueing, lunching or partying your personal SXSW experience is bound to be even more different from anyone else’s. Read more…
If you’re a DIY store, why create ugly looking, retail billboards if you can let the work speak for itself. OBI, Germany’s biggest DIY chain renovated run-down flats near their stores and used the outside (in the size of a billboard) as their ‘ad’.
Some old colleagues (Nathan Lennon and Dave Gibson) who are now at Droga5 in NY have made some super great ads for Honey Maid. The graham cracker brand has released an ad that shows real-life modern families in all their diverse glory, from gay and multiracial to rock ‘n’ roll. “Everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family”.

The internet of things: it is finally here. Oscar Mayer, an American cold cut, bacon, and hot dog brand, has created something awesome. Its Wake Up And Smell The Bacon app is a simple alarm clock app that starts your morning with the yummy sound of (Oscar Mayer) bacon. But combined with a ‘bacon scent alarm device’ it becomes a ‘multi-sensory alarm experience’ based on bacon. Read more…
Kenneth Cole wants mankind to be more kind. And so they pose a 21 day challenge to be kind to strangers and do good. And then document it with a Google Glass app. Sounds creepy good? I get the intention of promoting chivalry and all that the brand of Kenneth Cole stands for. But documenting your kindness is sort of against its character. Unless a good deed is only truly done once all our friends know about it.
Get the app here.

Now, being more sensitive to local economic and physical differences among its consumers in different regions and markets, Uniqlo revised its go-to-market strategy. Instead “everything fits everyone” thing, they are making larger-sized items for the US market and cheaper items for the economically disadvantages regions in China. This is quite a ballsy move for any retailer due to consequences that differences in sizing and quality can do to the brand, yet an incredibly intelligent one, as it makes the brand more resilient globally.

It can be a wonderful thing for blind people, but it is a sort of field day for the rest of us, too. Fujitsu’s next-gen touchscreens, unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week, will allow us to feel haptic sensations from our screens. If we are watching a video of water, we would feel its slippery surface. If we are looking at the picture of rocks, we would be able to feel them, too.
The technology behind the haptic screen sounds pretty sci-fi today, but I am sure it will become run-of-the-mill in a few years. Fujitsu uses ultrasonic waves to vibrate the air at the very top of the screen, effectively turning air into a flexible, responsive surface giving off the impression of different textures. Pretty smart.
