With Augmented Reality, decorating your home will never be the same

With the help of an interior designer, or going it alone, decorating your home always brought with it the risk of things not coming together the way you had envisioned – the lampshade didn’t actually fit the color scheme, the coffee table was too tall for your sofa, everything ended up too cluttered.

Embracing Augmented Reality in 2018

For over a decade omni-channel has been a term used to describe digital and physical marketing. While many have strived to achieve an omni-channel strategy, unifying the digital and physical customer experiences have been an ongoing challenge for marketers. However, that may be changing.

Over the next few years, we will see significant adoption of AR technology by brands and retailers as a way to engage consumers and deliver a more compelling brand experience. We will see AR bridge the gap between the online and offline worlds. In many ways, AR can serve as the cornerstone for tying the digital and physical brand experiences together.

Creating a business Facebook page, tweeting about industry news, sending sale push notifications to customers… the channels we use to talk to leads and customers are evolving every day.

Sidewalk ads, branded giveaways (like pens or shirts), and local donations are all examples of offline guerrilla marketing. These simple actions are easy ways to spread the business name in subtle but effective ways. Below we pay tribute to the old-school marketing strategies that still do the job today.

Making Stop Motion Animation Looks Really Hard


I mean, the animator in the gif above changes his shirt at least four times before he’s able to make the Ninja Monkey doll walk, like, a couple of steps. That’s a lot of time spent animating the most basic of motions lasting just seconds. Imagine all the elbow grease that goes into the more intense stuff, or even a minute of footage. In the behind-the-scenesfootage of Kubo and the Two Strings, we get to see a bit of the magic that goes into making a stop motion film.
