Day 5 – Experience Your Dream Vacation with an Augmented Reality Virtual Destination Tour!
We all need a vacation, but finding the time and the money to afford one is not always simple. The St-Petersberg/Clearwater area decided to try Augmented Reality to entice people to book a vacation, by offering them a glimpse of what they were missing! They created an Augmented Reality virtual tour, which gives potential visitors a glimpse of the white sandy beaches, conservation areas and historical landmarks that St-Petersberg/Clearwater is known for. The tour also offers the ability to interact and explore by clicking on different areas of the image to learn fun facts and travel tips. Printed on brochures, posters and booklets, this type of Augmented Reality campaign gives people the opportunity to experience and explore a travel destination that they may never have considered.
A Little Piece of Paradise… On Your Smartphone
Augmented Reality is perfectly suited for airlines and travel agencies, and these ads would work great in a variety of applications! Posters, wall-graphics, billboards, light-boxes, and bus shelters are all great opportunities to make people yearn for a sandy beach or an exotic destination. Try 3M 3630 for backlit applications, the environmentally friendly Converd Blox-Lite for banners and hanging signage, or Avery MPI 2611 for eye-cathing wall-graphics!
