Happy Goggles

Today’s generation of kids are growing up in a world where smartphones and tablets are a part of their everday lifes. So to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Happy Meal, McDonald’s in Sweden decided to move with the times. This however did not require them to make radical changes. With a bit of ripping, folding and sliding they created the Happy Goggles – a unique VR viewer made from an ordinary Happy Meal box.

The limited edition Happy Goggles will be available from March 5th along with a virtual reality skiing game called “Slope Stars” [Download Link]. The game has been endorsed by the Swedish National Ski Team and provides a 360° ski experience, allowing the kids to open doors to a world of fantasy and fun, while learning how to stay safe on the ski slopes.

Volvo HoloLens Showroom

Car companies today are relying more and more on augmented and virtual reality to help visualize their work. And for about six months now, Microsoft and Volvo have been working on a way to incorporate a “mixed reality” into the process of choosing a car. Now with the help of Microsoft’s HoloLens technology they have successfully put together a car showroom straight out of science fiction.

The below video shows how car buyers will be able to check out useful features that are often overlooked because they no longer read car manuals. This detailed mixed reality visualization will also help buyers understand how the respective features work in various scenarios.
