Presentation for the Augmented Reality Event May 8, 2012, a gathering of some of the leading minds and developers in the field. The audience was expecting PepsiCo's CMO and Chief Engagement Officer, Frank Cooper, who asked me to step in due to schedule conflicts. I presented three brands of radically different scale and fit in consumer's lives from Pepsi to Red Bull to La Chouffe beer. The core themes were:
1) that AR and other technologies make it mainstream when they cross over to culture
2) that SoLoMo is an advantaged experiential and consumer opportunity for AR development
3) that developers have to think about brands as more than a paycheck b/c brands are thinking about content, curation and extending consumer engagement over their marketing platforms in more sophisticated ways
4) that AR is still nascent with much room for creativity and the budget/rationale unlocks will be via metadata and path to purchase while the story over them must be entertainment/culture
