Coca Cola Wi-Fi

Fancy having a can of Coke while you surf your phone browser or check an email? Coca Cola’s vending machines now equipped with Wi-Fi Internet access is one way to enhance their services.Even if it isnt for the drink, the idea of going there just for the Internet is going to get you to coin a can one way or the other. Together with BT Global Services, the free Wi-Fi helps to enhance experience in impoverished communities. Targeted to launch in Eastern Cape and rural Mpumalanga, the launch locations ensure easy accessibility to the local communities.

A really good idea to provide both win-win situations for both drinking and enjoying Wi-Fi  services. Definitely a good way to enhance the experience and strengthen Coca Cola’s brand equity amongst the less developed areas. In fact, there were plans to actually install “Wi-Fi coolers” over the rest of South Africa. Do you think this is a good initiative by Coca Cola?

Basketball projection

This is quite a spectacular way to introduce a game. Check out this projection through Quince imaging’s 3D technology. It features the pre and post-shows on the Philadelphia 76ers basketball court. Building excitement and hype, this is a good way to showcase more thrilling scenes and pre warm the thrilling crowd. The video includes animations of the players, their awesome shots as well as the team line ups. Very cool stuff.

4D fashion showcase

This has got to be in a class of its own. Check out Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2015 Fashion show where it features breathtaking visuals via 4D Holographic technology. Oops, I actually mean Holographic Water Projections! Light projections once took the stage by storm, is now slowly being replaced by alternative medias. New York City’s Central Park was blazing with fashion goers and celebs as they craze over the 60 foot high water fountain where the projections lit the runway in 4D with captivating background. The entire experience was epic. Really cool showcase of their recent spring 2015 by Ralph Lauren. Brilliant.

FIFA 15

Fantastic. It has been a while i last posted and this has just got to be the post today. Brilliant execution by Wieden + Kennedy for FIFA 15, “Feel the Game”. As exciting as you might expect, one of their forte when it comes to long TV commercials with well articulated scenes of action. So much thrill, so interactive and highly engaging content. We see people’s exhilarated faces, disappointing faces, desperate moments of silent and the on-the-edge moment of scoring. So much excitement just like how you would expect when you are playing the game. Fantastic!

Living on the edge

I know I havent been catching up a lot on design stuffs. Not that I will, but this article I chance upon on DesignTaxi just had to come on to the blog. First thing that came to my mind, “Man, I want that!” A house so dangerously mounted on to the edge of the cliff! Check this house from the Southwest coast of Victoria, Australia. That view! At this point, the design had significantly outweighed practicality. The Cliff House, is designed by Modscape Concept in an attempt to answer to the amazing needs for an unique yet adventurous clientele. Definitely a very intense moment for those with a phobia for heights but a very outlandish way of living for those who truly appreciate heights! As you can see, the highest floor is basically designed for the vehicle while the different levels portray a different segment of the house. Interestingly, the house diverges down narrowing as it moves lower. One must be pondering how this structure can actually be securely mounted to the edge of the cliff. To answer that, the designers have used engineered steel pins to ensure security has not been compromised. Awesome!

Spin spin spin!
