Political Activism, Social Change, and Augmented Reality Email Share 0 Email Share S uperimposing digital data on the physical world is not just for the 1%. As more of our innovators, artisans, and marketers experiment with augmented reality, the tumultuous politics of our times are beginning to follow suit.

Q&A: Adam Broitman on augmented reality marketing | Blog Caution: eye-poppingly cool links ahead. If you haven't yet heard of augmented reality, or its applications in marketing, it's time to start working on some serious mind-expansion. AR may be brand new cutting edge technology, but it's already started creeping into marketing campaigns from organizations ranging from GE to Esquire magazine...even the US Postal Service. Adam Broitman, partner and ringleader of the New York based agency, has been preaching the AR gospel -- and working on some groundbreaking campaigns. Q: So let's start at the top.

Augmented Reality Browser – Layar Games Alfresco Corée du Sud : Un supermarché Tesco virtuel recréé dans le métro permet aux voyageurs de faire leurs courses en direct grâce au QR Code « Web & Lemonade 23 juin Le distributeur Tesco frappe fort avec sa dernière initiative en Corée du Sud : Homeplus. La problématique de ce géant de la distribution était la suivante : Comment devenir le n°1 sans augmenter le nombre de magasins? Pour ce faire, le challenger s’est inspiré du mode vie sud-coréen pour adapter son offre : « faire venir le magasin aux consommateurs et non les consommateurs au magasin »… Les Sud Coréens travaillent énormément (#2 Most hard-working countries of the world 2011) et se déplacent donc d’autant dans les transports en commun. C’est ainsi qu’est née l’idée de créer un supermarché virtuel au sein même des stations de métro. Cette initiative est sans doute une belle impulsion pour une nouvelle forme de m-commerce, qui n’en est qu’aux balbutiements… WordPress: Soyez le premier à aimer ceci.

Augmented Reality has the potential to revolutionize gaming so today we’ll look at the top 10 list of augmented reality games that I really want to play.

I’m not sure if this one was ever designed to be a real game or just a promotion video from HP. Did you like this?

History Channel Turns Foursquare Into A Real World Pop-Up Video For all the talk about Foursquare, one of the coolest features that gets very little buzz is the Tips area. Here, you’ll find suggestions about venues from other users of the service. And if you’re friends with a user who has left a tip, you’ll get a notification with the tip on your iPhone when you check-in somewhere close by. The History Channel has decided to make use of this feature in an interesting way. The cable television channel has started populating tips at various venues around the United States to coincide with its new show, America The Story Of Us (starting April 25). When you check-in at one of these venues with a History Channel tip, you’ll get a notification with the tip (see screenshot). Foursquare has no shortage of mainstream media partners, and History Channel is one of the newest. As has been widely reported, Foursquare is currently in the process of deciding whether to raise a new mega round of funding or sell to Yahoo.
