Saturday: Aircards Launches Web AR OOH Experience for BON V!V

Popular Hard Seltzer brand BON V!V deployed a creative Web-based Augmented Reality outdoor advertising campaign throughout LA and San Diego. Developed by Web AR agency Aircards, the experience gives passersby of the on-street advertisement to scan the activation QR code with their mobile device (no app download required) to then tap-to-place a fully functioning, fully interactive 3D vending machine.

Consumers could choose their favorite flavor from the vending machine choices available, and once selected their can of choice is dispensed in a 3D animation with associated audio. The sound of the virtual can opening is ASMR heaven!
