Immersive technologies like VR and AR arguably represent the most powerful storytelling medium we have ever had. Until recently, AR brand applications and experiences have been relegated to experiments and bespoke activations, trapped within the confines of purpose-built applications. But the industry is moving fast. Really fast. And while change is great, it can also be confusing, misleading and messy. How are brands using AR? Who is adopting? Is it really working? Join Unity Technologies’ Tony Parisi as he explores the utility of AR, examining its usefulness, scalability, and enjoyment through case studies, lessons learned and experiences from the field.
