Web-Based Augmented Reality Used to Enhance Samsung 'Life Unstoppable' Virtual Event
Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Augmented Reality was used to enhance Samsung's virtual house tour, which included impressive live Web AR product demonstrations. Smyle Creative agency engaged Aircards to develop 3D Web AR experiences to enhance Samsung's 'Life Unstoppable' virtual event and enable viewers to get hands-on with the upcoming product range.

LONDON, Sept. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Samsung's virtual press conference event impressed media attendees with a virtual Samsung House tour alongside live hands-on 3D Augmented Reality product demonstrations.

Smyle Creative provided an impressive mix of talent to enable the seamless launch of Samsung's virtual event. This included live Web-based Augmented Reality product demonstrations created by the experienced WebAR development team at Aircards, working closely with the Smyle team.

Rather than participating in the IFA Electronics show in Berlin, Samsung pivoted their latest product launches to virtual-only events. Samsung and their media partners worked together to deliver a truly unique and immersive livestreamed experience. Smyle used Epic's Unreal Engine and pixel-streaming technology to build an innovative 3D virtual tour experience around a virtual house filled with the latest Samsung product releases.

Smyle engaged Aircards to develop the Web-based Augmented Reality (Web AR) elements of the event, which allowed the attendees to scan on-screen QR codes and activate 3D product demonstrations within their own environment. This enabled attendees to interact with Samsung's latest and upcoming product range in real-time augmented reality, alongside the live-streamed event.

Featured products in the WebAR experience included the exciting Galaxy Z Fold 2 foldable phone, Odyssey G9 gaming monitor, and Samsung Bespoke refrigerator.

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 phone was animated to unfold in front of the user and showcase the revolutionary folding screen and innovative hinge design.

The fridge configuration experience allowed users to tap to customize the color, layout, and quantity of refrigerators which were augmented into their own space.

Aircards Head of WebAR, Adin Gold said:

"We were thrilled to work alongside our partners at Smyle Creative to add an exciting Web AR dimension to Samsung's 'Life Unstoppable' live event. This flagship mixed-reality experience embodies a significant shift we're seeing in the live-event and product visualization space, towards immersive extended-reality experiences. This new medium is substantially more accessible, interactive, and shareable than what can be achieved in-person."
