Bringing back childhood strategies into adult advertising and marketing

Bringing back childhood strategies into adult advertising and marketing | Talking things | Scoop.it
As a shopper (or parent) you may have experienced a tantrum being thrown by a child who insists on getting something that they have seen ... or ... you were that child throwing the tantrum.
roberto gilli's insight:

The product is the medium.

 

Quote: The concept of Point-Know-Buy (PKB) works pretty much the same way: the consumer sees "something" of interest to them, they then "point" at the product or code with their mobile device camera, they gain instant information about the product ("know") and then make a decision to "buy" the product - or not.
There are two main forms of PKB used today for advertising and marketing benefits, namely; Quick Response (QR) codes and Augmented Reality.

Mobile Next.0: Five business scenarios for the wearable, augmented-reality era

Mobile Next.0: Five business scenarios for the wearable, augmented-reality era | Talking things | Scoop.it
Wearable computing is coming, and combined with augmented-reality apps, it could bring some benefits for the enterprise.
roberto gilli's insight:

Market trends of wearable devices and augmented reality applications.

 

"The simple fact that wearable devices are hands-free gives them a distinct advantage over smartphones and tablets and, when coupled with AR applications, opens up a number of interesting application scenarios across industries as diverse as retail, financial services, healthcare, transportation and government."

For example: "Understanding and navigating the physical environment" or "Providing detailed guidance for complex manual tasks."

 

Hands-free means that you have to dialogue with the objects-places via the wearable device.

Despite what some may think, Google Glass isn't really a platform designed for augmented reality.

Via Pekka Puhakka
roberto gilli's insight:

Quote: "Despite what some may think, Google Glass isn’t really a platform designed for augmented reality. AR lays images and text over real life objects, and so works best when the user is looking through a device.
Glass puts a screen in the top right of your field of vision rather than right in front of you, which means any AR additions are restricted to the corner of your right eye."
