Popscopic – Augmented Reality API Mashup

At Modern Climate we like to experiment, so the Circus Mashimus API mashup contest was the perfect outlet. The result was a winning augmented reality experience called Popscopic that had some fun letting users browse and shop popular entertainment titles that were pulled from the BestBuy.com, Billboard Magazine, and New York Times APIs. Also, reminding people that technology doesn’t always have to look techie.

Best Buy Digital Blue Shirt Product Narrowing Tool

To help increase the in-store decision making process, we helped Best Buy’s customers get to the product that’s right for them with a dynamic touch screen narrowing tool. I introduced the Digital Blue Shirt, which plays off the actual Blue Shirt in the stores and serves as the level two product expert in the store. Through an engaging attract loop and active interface, the user answers a series of questions to narrow the number of products to only the ones that fit their preferences. Currently in the Roseville, MN Best Buy, this will be in Best Buy stores around the country and extend to different product categories in the near future.

Modern Climate Fly

How do you keep people connected to what’s going on all over the world at any second? Well, we placed an ad in Delta Fly magazine which pointed people to an app on our website. The app pulls the latest trends from Twitter and Google and uses those terms to search for new content posted within the last three hours. The results are the top ten trending topics, or as we call it, Fly. It’s actually very useful. I check it every day to find out what’s going on out there.
