‘Fanta PlayPuddles’ Interactive ‘Sound Effects’ Mall Advertising Campaign A Big Hit With Consumers

April, 2009 - Interactive floor advertising in malls is all the rage, especially in Europe and Asia.  But the Coca-Cola Company, Pattison Outdoor, and Taxi 2 Advertising are among the first-ever to use GestureTek’s GroundFX interactive video gesture control technology for sound effects (rather than visual effects) in order to catch the ear of consumers.

The project’s media and creative leaders approached GestureTek about using our camera-based interactive motion detection technology in an interactive advertising campaign for the Fanta brand of fruit-flavored soft drinks.  GestureTek’s popular GestureFX interactive visual display system projects visual images, advertising or games onto any surface.  Using camera technology and body tracking software, the system tracks the hand and body movement of passers-by and responds in real-time with dynamic changes to the interactive special effects. 

The team was looking for a fresh twist on how this eye-catching multimedia digital signage technology is generally used. After much brainstorming, the idea of a dynamic soundscape was born and the vision began to take shape.  The Fanta project consists of a large 16 square foot floor display of a giant Fanta bottle with large bubbles flowing out of the top.  Hanging 20 feet above is a directional speaker, computer and tracking camera. The speaker focuses sound down to the area of the graphic and the camera tracks the precise movements of people below.  Whenever a person walks over a Fanta bubble, they hear a specific sound effect.  When several people walk over multiple bubbles at the same time, multiple sounds play simultaneously. After 5 minutes, the sound file changes so that a new set of sounds play.

"The advertising caught the attention of consumers and focused them on the Fanta brand.  People stopped to watch their friends play in the area and parents stopped to watch their kids. Visitors were definitely engaged with the display far longer than they would have been with plain static signage that had no interactive component,” said Barry Pusitz, Business Development Manager for GestureTek. “More than that, the sound effects lent themselves well to the Fanta brand, because everyone recognizes the sounds that pop bottles and cans can make when they are opened.”
