Our take

Whilst this sort of technology has been approached by brands before – with Microsoft announcing their “HoloLens” technology earlier this year – the remarkable difference here is that the development has been curated by a consumer. It doesn’t matter if it is coming from a well-known brand or from somebody’s garage, there is clearly an appetite for advancement in the market place. If consumers are willing to challenge themselves, then advertisers should see it as an invitation to be bold and innovative as well.
