#INSPIREDPINGS - August 2017 Issue

Each month we bring together the best stories from the worlds of live events, experiential and advertising communications in our blog #INSPIREDPINGS - celebrating the best "lightbulb" moments and ideas from across the Web. This month we take a look at the future of in-car entertainment, a new take on retirement living, and much more.

CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE THINKING

Sensory Reality set to Overhaul the Shopping Experience

Brand activation agency, Geometry Global UK, is the first in Britain to install the Sensiks Sensory Reality Pod, which combines Sensory Reality with VR and AR to provide a fully customisable experience. The pods allow brands to control sound, vision, smell, temperature, air flow, taste and vibration, meaning they can be as inventive as they like.

Driverless Cars Will Change the Way We Consume Entertainment

It’s now certain that the future will involve driverless cars, but few have stopped to think about how this will transform the way we consume entertainment whilst on-the-go. With our attention not having to be on the road, innovations such as Fords Autonomous Vehicle Entertainment System, seem much more likely. No longer are small backseat screens going to do the trick when projector screens the size of your windscreen are the alternative. It seems the sky is the limit for in-car entertainment; not a great sign for the trusty wireless!

IDEAS THAT CONNECT AND ENGAGE AUDIENCES

Summer Camp for Start-Ups: Instagram Style

Instagram for Business teamed up with stylish apron company, Hedley & Bennett, to bring the first-ever ‘School of Hustle’ to over 200 start-ups. The one-day conference created a platform for small businesses to share insights and advice on the world of business, alongside effective lessons on how to make use of social media. Both Instagram and Hedley & Bennett wanted attendees to realise the magnificent amount of support available to small businesses whilst showcasing the strong sense of community that has been building amongst entrepreneurs for many years.

A Very Modern Retirement

It’s no secret that we are living longer, and as the global population of over 65s continues to grow, the attention is turning to maintaining a good quality of life for our older generation. Spark, an architectural firm filled with innovative thinkers, have designed a conceptual proposal to meet this need - Homefarm. The idea, in simple terms, is an urban based residential care village which also doubles up as a vertical farming community. Homefarm aims to tackle the socio-economic strain of an aging population but perhaps more importantly, aims to reduce the loneliness of old age by creating a close-knit, self-sufficient community for the elderly.

INSPIRATION FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Staging the Unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Last week’s unveiling of the all new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has to be one of the most talked about news stories within the tech sector this month. The introduction to the Note’s many new features such as the dual camera and the 6.3-inch screen were almost upstaged, it seems, by, ironically, the staging of the unveiling itself. The three enormous, high-resolution LED screens surrounded the stage and created quite the buzz; allowing the smartphone to be projected into clear 3D images for everyone to see.

Refinery29's Immersive Playground

We love the idea behind Refinery29’s four-day event; an immersive playground throughout 29 rooms. The installation, aside from being visually beautiful and totally Instagram-able, aims to confront controversial issues (such as transgender bathroom laws) under the umbrella theme ‘Turn It Into Art’. This is the third instalment from the women’s media brand, its return being attributed to the overwhelming success in previous years. If the first two installations are anything to go by, we’re positive this year's will be a hit.
