Amazon's Flow app is augmented reality shopping goodness
"Flow allows the user to point their iPhone's camera at an object, like a book, DVD, Blur-ray disc, or video game (and Nutella, apparently) and get an instantaneous augmented reality overlay of the product information right on the iPhone's screen. The overlay is more than just a Buy It Now link to Amazon.com. The app utilizes Amazon's large digital media collection and allows users to instantly get audio previews of CDs they've scanned or video previews of DVDs, video games, and more." interesting to see if amazon can connect to the small independent retails to collaborate around this service (think local browseable physical store back-up with amazon logistics) - potential new interesting co-opetition

Fitting Room Firemen - Penningtons Styled to Surprise Campaign Wows Unexpected Shoppers
"Penningtons Styled to Surprise campaign featured a “magic mirror” triggered by a motion sensor. Once a shopper stepped on a strategically placed rectangle on the floor, two firemen appeared in the mirror, descending from poles. The firemen would looked appreciatively at the shopper’s outfit and then proceeded to compete against each other for her attention—for instance, one would offer the shopper flowers while the other would draw a heart on the mirror." interesting use of play

"The latter half of the 20th century saw the built environment merged with media space, and architecture taking on new roles related to branding, image and consumerism. Augmented reality may recontextualise the functions of consumerism and architecture, and change in the way in which we operate within it." via Kim Quazi at ArAs
