Pepsi recently launched a Pepsimoji Augmented Reality & Facial Recognition Experience. The Love: From Cave to Keyboard Exhibit, Imagined by Pepsi, explores the evolution of communication through the emotional lens of love – from primitive etchings on earthen walls to illustrative hieroglyphics; icons drawn by hand to icons on the screen; from <3 to today’s evocative global language: emojis. You can read more about the exhibit from the press release here or watch an overview video of the event here.
Zugara’s Facial Recognition technology was used for an Augmented Reality experience where a graphic emoji was overlaid on the person’s face depending on their expression. Different emoji expressions could be activated using facial expression including a smile, kiss, wink, sticking tongue out, acting bashful, and various movements of the head in different directions. Our Facial Recognition engine was optimized for iOS and used with 2 iPad Pro displays.
People at the event could save their image on our admin stations and email, text or share their photo socially. The iPad Pro displays were also synchronized to 2 large display monitors where other attendees could watch the Pepsimoji expressions change in real-time.
The Love: From Cave to Keyboard event also featured other innovative and interactive Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies. These technologies included a Betty Boop image recognition experience, Oculus Rift Virtual Reality video experience, and a Projection Mapping display. You can view images of these difference technologies in the gallery below.
