Few days ago Wired posted an article about the newest approach from Adidas on Augmented Reality as part of a campaign to be launched in February. Adidas shoes will come with codes in the tongue that allow you to hold it up to a web cam and launch a 3D world right in the palm of your hands.
Adidas plans to introduce three games into the virtual neighborhood. The sneakers will then serve not only as the key to get in, but also act as the controller for the games.
Augmented Reality has been said to be one of the trends for this year, but in fact it is not something new. Four years ago, Latin American agencies such as Iconolab, were already working with that technology for digital marketing campaigns.
