Players from various industries are discovering the potential of VR and integrate it in their product and/or promotion strategies. In mid-February, Coca-Cola started a VR campaign and released a tutorial on how to build custom cardboard viewers out of the cardboard packaging. For the purpose of the 30th birthday of the Happy Meal, McDonald’s Sweden re-invented their Happy Meal boxes. Kids can now build their own “Happy Goggles” out of the boxes and can directly play the accompanied game-app “Slope Stars”. With a limited release of 3,500 headsets, the special Happy Meal boxes will be available at 14 McDonald’s restaurants in Sweden. The German coffee and consumer goods company Tchibo is now also selling a mobile VR viewing device. Whereas Google Cardboard and the viewing device available at Tchibo have a certain price itself, Coca-Cola’s and McDonald’s goggles just come along with the purchase of the Coke respectively the Happy Meal.
Let’s see who is next to offer a solution!
