YDreams’ Flapi will flip your mind.
You all know the classic story: boy meets girl; girl plays with boy; boy falls in love with girl; girl leaves…
Maria Palma just shared with me YDream‘s take on the story, featuring their virtual Mascot, Flapi the cute, and an even more cute – real girl (the Creative Director’s daughter which totally steals the show).
I like the attempt for drama driven by the interaction between real and virtual.
But I’d love to see this on a portable device. The girl should see Flapi in her field of view avoiding the need to turn her head to watch it on the screen.
YDreams response: they’re thinking about it…
This demo (based on their SimVideo augmented reality platform) and others were presented by YDreams’ CEO, Antonio Camara, at the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas this week.
YDreams wasn’t the only AR company to present at the event: Total Immersion made a splash as well.
