Olympus: A “hands-on”, demo clicks with customers
Total Immersion created the world’s first Augmented Reality camera. Working with advertising agency Mullen, the Augmented Reality promotion placed advertisements in Wired Magazine and Popular Photography, offering readers directions on how to recieve a 3D image of a life-size replica of the camera and instructions for triggering the online Augmented Reality experience. The browser-based AR application brought the camera to life, enabling consumers to explore a full-featured virtual 3D model of the Olympus PEN E-PL1 micro camera, the thinnest digital SLR on the market. Prospective buyers not only got an exceptionally realistic feel for the PEN E-PL1’s compact size and capabilities, the AR version allowed them to click and shoot their own digital photo. Impressed customers could purchase the camera instantly online, or be directed to Olympus retail locations.
"Augmented Reality has been used by companies before, but more as a gimmick than as an actual, working, in-depth product demo. This is as close to having the camera in your hands as you can get without actually having it in your hands." Stephen Mietelski, Group Creative Director, Mullen
