Spread the Joy: A Little Augmented Reality and a Rosetta Snow Day

snowdayWhat do augmented reality, snowdays and New Orleans have in common?  A Happy Holidays card and helping to spread some joy from Rosetta.

Every year agencies of all types like to show their stuff with digital holiday cards.  Looking to raise the bar from last year, the Rosetta team is trying something new.  Our team took their passion for technology, social media and working for a good cause to dream up something fun – and we hope people find it to be a “different taste” from the usual agency card.  Grab your webcam and see what I mean.

Happy Holidays from Rosetta

What’s more joyful than catching snowflakes on your tongue?  If we catch a million snowflakes, on February 20, 2010, we’ll be in New Orleans providing some joy to local children at City Park: a snow day.  Read more at the card site, and I look forward to sharing stories of the joy from that event in a couple months.  Have a happy and healthy holiday season.

Note: We’ll be watching usage and looking to fix or upgrade features – would love your input on what we could improve.

UPDATE: The WSJ covered our holiday card today (“Stop Licking Your Monitor,” 12/15/2009).  My favorite quote is about “on-tongue recognition technology” from Rosetta partner Toni Hess.

  • Adam,
    Great work! Love to see Augmented Reality on your plate! We recently had a great podcast episode that included a long segment on Augmented Reality – interviews with the Yelp product manager on their Monocle AR app as well as with the CD from Brand about the future of AR.
    Let me know what you think…

    Thanks for the entertainment. I got 100 snowflakes and looked like an idiot doing it! 🙂

  • Great podcast Andrew – thanks for the feedback and I love the comments we have received about feeling like an idiot with your tongue out in front of a webcam. We have been asked if we're recording behind the scenes – maybe an enhancement for next year.
