This next generation vending machine is pretty crazy. It looks a bit like the Adidas Shoe Wall, but it also has the ability to detect the age and gender of the shopper to give them suggestions. Insane!
“According to Akihabara News, the machine is able to determine the age and gender of the person using it, suggesting specific drinks for that person. As a result, JR East Water Business has published a press release stating the machines take 3x more sales than other vending machines, apparently the machines are so popular people queue just to interact with them, with people between the ages of 20 and 30 most likely to buy something.”
Adidas will be releasing sneakers in February that have an augmented reality kick to them - featuring a a 3D world complete with interactive games that use the sneaker as a controller device. The shoes will cost between $65 and $95. This should be interesting!
These are computer-animated fish tanks in vacant storefronts along sidewalks in big US cities to advertise Carnival cruises. Passerby can text the number on the screen and then control the swimming patterns of the fish inside the aquarium by texting in commands. Elements inside the aquarium are also set off by motion detectors, so for example seaweed waves when somebody walks by. Again, increasing interactivity within advertising methods.
"Advertising is the art of making whole lies out of half truths."
But fuck it, advertising is just awesome. Enjoy browsing!
