Augmented & Mixed Reality

Augmented Reality  (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR)  are highly engaging and entertaining methods of delivering your key messages, helping retention and word of mouth.

AR is usually delivered via a smartphone or tablet, the best-known example being Pokemon GO.  Being able to react to trigger codes and images as well as GPS they are great at adding engaging content to the real-world, such as POS, detail aids, tempory and permanent installations giving you highly targeted messaging.  They can also be tracked enabling a robust interrogation of usage.

MR is currently best seen using HoloLens.  These provide the user with a 3D hologram, that can be viewed as if it were a real object.  Multiple users can see and interact with the same object making it a powerful sales and educational tool.

Certain products, services and messages demand a sense of reality to achieve the right emotional effect, particularly when demonstrating real world effects.

Hardware-aside, the design and production of these channels still rely on the same core skills and tools as any other form of story-telling. We work closely with you to choose the right solution for your needs and budget, with all production occurring in-house.  We can also assist with associated production requirements such as script writing and music composition.
