Find out more about February’s best AR examples, with engaging AR experiences for retail delivered with both WebAR and native apps.

What I have loved about the experiences from February is the inclusiveness. The experiences have been designed and created for both adults and Kids alike. The experience our Creative Studio team have created for Nestle CPW and DC appeals to the daydreamers, those who imagine being a superhero. For their ‘always on a journey’ campaign H&M created an experience that was both engaging and playful, for  kids and adults alike.

We have also had some inclusive experiences created by our Zapworks agencies. With Bitegyeser aiming to engage the creative child, with their colourful experience.  Finally, the experience from Razorfish and Busterwood was created for Kinder to encourage their customers to “share a smile”.

As for Zappar news, we released our first update of 2023 to Zapworks Designer, We added Face Tracking!  We also won at the PAC awards! Were awarded the Best In Class Award for Universal Design for Unilever Comfort featuring our all-new Accessible QR codes with Zapvision.
