    Should you travel to the Metaverse?

    Posted by Liisa Mathlin on 16.2.2023

    The term Metaverse has found its way from nerds' and scifisists' coves to the tables of every knowledgeable marketer, advertiser and brander.

    We should once again get excited over something new, and make immersive content, create viral social media filters, or, at the bare minimum, organise virtual events. But they just don't fit into our workflow. Even our TikTok channel that we set up last year is shouting in the silence. Our brand is not a trailblazer or a trendsetter. Plus, we're always busy.

    Extended reality for business - How to attract, engage, and impact?

    Posted by Liisa Mathlin on 21.9.2021


    "What the fuck does that mean? 'Ang on, what does augmented reality mean, Sharon."

    Ozzy Osbourne


    That is the question to answer; what does augmented, and more broadly, extended reality mean for brands and businesses? Modern-day marketing faces many challenges. How to stand out from all the other messages consumers are bombarded with? How to keep the audience's attention when all they want is to scroll, swipe and skip? How to be the one people will remember at the end of the day?

    AR wearables to attach to your body for more immersive experiences

    Posted by Liisa Mathlin on 4.5.2021

    Augmented reality (AR) enables us to utilize our surroundings better. We can visualize ideas that are difficult to understand and hear sounds that have drowned under all the noise. We can even smell, taste, and feel things that might not physically be near us.

    For the AR content to become genuinely immersive, we need to engage all of our senses. A virtual experience doesn't feel real if it only teases, for example, our vision.

    Make virtual business real - show & tell in online showroom

    Posted by Liisa Mathlin on 27.4.2021

    The world has changed drastically in a short time. We are all familiar with virtual group meetings.

    Extended reality breaks the boundaries between technology and fine art

    Posted by Liisa Mathlin on 18.3.2021

    Our world has become more connected than ever. The physical distancing has led to being more close virtually, but virtual connections often lack something.

    The emotional connection that physical encounters offer is difficult, probably impossible, to transform into virtual. But, with immersive technologies, virtual content can become an experience that delights and gives that new perspective.
