Augmented Storytelling 

Storytelling is a relatively easy path to form immersion, which is why many brands build identities and marketing strategies around it. Successful exercises embed brand presence and usage rituals to make the brand experience inseparable from the targeted individual and social context. What Augmented Reality does is to combine brand storytelling with physical and digital platforms, interlacing multidisciplinary methodologies to create a rich narrative. Galit will discuss the potential and challenges of augmented storytelling.

Augmenting Alice 

Whether you are an Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality content creator or consumer, Augmented Reality will play a major role in our (near and far) future experiences and interactions. Augmenting Alice was written with the intent to contextualise and futurescape Augmented Reality applications, consider the technology’s implementation potential, challenges and risks. The book contains an augmented layer, which provides an interactive experience.
