ARKit AR-Enabled Dance Practice (Video)

A simple, smart application of AR to learn how to do something we personally have had no hope of learning through any other mechanism thus far.

This particular effort uses Apple's ARKit, and so far at least, it looks promising. Though they could go ahead and just add an option for two left feet for us.

Share a (Personalized) Coca-Cola Video and a Smile

Talk about a Coke and a smile.

Longtime readers know we're huge fans of Coca-Cola marketing (though we're NOT happy to hear Coke Zero is getting replaced by Coke Zero Sugar ... but we digress).

Check out this new website, where you can enter a friend's first name and send a personalized video to them. Coke created 1,000 custom videos for the effort, from Ashley to Abdullatif and beyond. There's even a song if they haven't added a name you're looking for yet.

We know "Open Happiness" is long gone, but this would have fit perfectly.

Robot Colonel Sanders Isn't The Only New KFC Freakiness (Video)


From the WTF Dept: There's a National Fried Chicken Day.

From the WTF Dept: There's a al Fried Chicken Day.

Oh, and this Funny or Die video captures what happens when a robot Harland ("Human Assisted Animatronic Linguistic Networked Device") Sanders takes orders at the drive-thru to celebrate.

Still, as strange as it may seem, this isn't even KFC's oddest promotion.

Yesterday it was reported KFC has a new Colonel Sanders smartphone (insert your own "finger clicking good" joke here).

And let's not forget the Colonel Sanders superhero comics from DC.

As if we could ever unsee them.

Win Free Beer with Amstel's 'Snatch' AR Game (Video)

It's like Pokémon Go - with beer.

Dutch beer brand Amstel has teamed up with mobile AR treasure hunt app Snatch to give away 10,000 free pints to people who "snatch" and hold onto their prizes for up to six hours.

Oh, and in addition to the free beer, there are 20 bikes at stake—and three trips to Amsterdam.

They had us at "AR" and "beer," but those will work, too. 

Learn more, here.

Gorillaz App Wins Cannes 2017 Gold Lion with VR, AR Experiences (Video)

Gotta love this app. Though as far as this recap video goes, I'm not sure what's better: The app's performance, or the voice talent's accent. Kudos to all involved.
