Find out more about September's best AR examples, with amazing web AR experiences and the exciting launch of State of AR

What I have loved about this month’s experience selection is the excellent execution of AR activations designed for outside the home. Taking the context of your AR experience into account is paramount for success and something that has been done effortlessly by this group, both for retail and sustainability initiatives (where the outside world is key). Something that I was actually reminded of during an episode of State of AR ...alongside some excellent AR motivational quotes.

AR for Retail: H&M Kids - Back to School 


Objective: To find new ways of interacting and engaging with customers in store
Delivery Method: WebAR 
Tools used: ZapWorks Studio 

The Zappar Creative Studio Team partnered with H&M Kids to bring some playfulness to their 'back to school' collection. In this interactive experience kids are encouraged to tap the different locker doors to virtually open them and reveal the friendly animated characters. Launched via a QR code, kids can tap on any item of clothing they see the characters wearing and watch it get gobbled up by the recycling monster, highlighting H&M sustainable message. Once the game is over parents can read more about recycling clothers, conscious washing and garment collection programme on the sustainability page on the website.

The Zappar Creative Studio Team worked on this exciting experience with the team at Unilever who are using artificial intelligence to create the perfect scent. Launched via a QR code on the deodorant, customers can look around and spray their virtual can to reveal the code (an invisible 3D word) for a chance to win an iconic party with British rapper Aitch.
