MontrÃ©alâ€™s Underground Shopping Complex â€˜Promenades CathÃ©draleâ€™ Offers Customers Fun, Interactive Way to Win Holiday Shopping Prizes
MONTREAL, QuÃ©becâ€”November 25th 2010
, a MontrÃ©al-based technology start-up that produces â€˜through-glassâ€™ interactive technology, augmented reality, and smart phone applications for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7â€”today unveiled a special store-front interactive â€˜through-glassâ€™ projection display that gives holiday retailers and shoppers a new spin on an old favorite arcade-style game.
During the holiday shopping season (November 25th â€“ December 24th) retail stores in Promenades CathÃ©drale will issue customers a Quick Response â€œ
â€? coupon upon check out, allowing them to play a virtual version of the â€œClawâ€? game on a glass surface, turned interactive by 2XM technology (remember The Claw arcade game, that lifted the three-eyed alien toys to freedom in Pixarâ€™s Toy Story?).
The 2XM Interactive â€œClawâ€? game display is located in the central hall in front of â€œLinen Chestâ€?. Customers who are able to â€˜captureâ€™ a prize-ball in the game will get a shopping voucher worth varying amounts from any one of the retail stores within Promenades CathÃ©drale.
â€œ2XM Interactive began working with SGM Agency, the marketing and advertising agency of record for Promenades CathÃ©drale, several weeks ago on this unique and creative holiday campaign that showcases our interactive â€˜through-glassâ€™ technology to offer a fun, easy, and attention-grabbing user experience for consumers,â€? said Antoine Azar, president and founder of 2XM Interactive. â€œWeâ€™re excited to leverage 2XM Interactive next-generation technology and demonstrate how we offer both businesses and consumers creative ways to use interactive â€˜through-glassâ€™ projection, augmented reality, and smart phone applications to engage their business partners and customers,â€? added Azar.
