  23. 23. A live experience, simulation, or exhibit HP and Stone Yamashita created “an exhibit that filled 6000 square feet... ‘We invented a fictitious family called the Ferraris...and built an exhibit about their life and their visit to Disney World’. ... Each room followed the Ferraris through various scenes of their Disney World vacation. HP technology helped them buy tickets, sped their entry into the park, and scheduled their reservations for dinner. Another bit of technology helped them enjoy their favorite rides while minimizing waiting time. Back inside their hotel room at the end of the day, there was a final twist: A digital picture frame had automatically downloaded a picture of them as they rode a Disney World roller coaster.” “They took an abstract idea and made it concrete with an intense sensory experience.” Source: Made to Stick, Chip and Dan Heath agile42 | We advise, train and coach companies building software www.agile42.com | All rights reserved.
