Concept stand for Ipiranga 2014 Convention in São Paulo

16:24

Ipiranga, one of Brazil’s largest fuel distributors with over 6,400 shops located throughout the country, caters to consumer needs in the fuel sector. The group, a pioneer in eco-efficiency and sustainability in Brazil, has grown its network of Eco-efficient Posts in that country to 750. These structures, built and run using the most sustainable and efficient methods, are fully operational while some are still being implemented.

YDreams was asked to create a concept stand for the group’s Ipiranga 2014 Convention that would increase awareness for the Eco-efficient Posts’ brand at the annual national event, attended by all the group’s employees, suppliers and clients. Although the convention was not open to the general public, it catered to over 5,000 participants at the Transamerica Expo Center in São Paulo February 3rd to the 5th, 2014.

YDreams’ stand for Ipiranga covered 400m2 and featured eight specially designed natural user interfaces that aimed to create efficiency awareness in areas that ranged from water, energy and soil to waste and materials management. One of the stand’s most captivating solutions was a ceiling projection that gave way to a highly immersive environment.

In addition to the larger stand, YDreams also created an interactive solution for the event’s Gas Additives (one of Ipiranga’s main products) stand; the solution was comprised of furniture that incorporated a real automobile engine surrounded by movable screens strategically located throughout the furniture to simulate an X-Ray that compares the effects of normal and additive gasoline.

Roche PT uses YDreams AR apps to showcase product

14:31

YDreams was recently commissioned by McCann to come up with a different approach for showcasing one of pharmaceutical Roche’s recent product rollouts – the Cobas 8000, an ultra-modern diagnostic solution for conducting clinical lab analysis.

YDreams opted to use marker-based Augmented Reality to give the audience a 3D look at Cobas. Folks pretty much got to hold it in the palm of their hands and flip it around so they could observe it from various angles. To complement the marker-based AR app, YDreams brought a bit of tech and fun to the event with its marker-less Boxfall app. 

Below, a few pics to give up a better idea of YDreams’ contribution to the event.

50.000 virtual fish created on gamified environments

14:14

To date, YDreams has successfully deployed its Aquarium, a social, pet-raising simulator, in Germany, Denmark, Brazil, Portugal and Turkey, enabling users to let their creativity run wild and create over 50.000 pet fish

“In 2006, YDreams developed a successful mobile game with now super-hero Cristiano Ronaldo. The company has since developed engaging experiences for smart environments using its gaming expertise” says António Camara, YDreams’ CEO, “the Aquarium is a prime example of what will be a dominant trend in the  years to come: the gamification of cultural and retail spaces.”

Aquarium, a refreshing experience marketing tool, first developed for client Multi Mall for shopping center Forum Sintra in Portugal, is proving extremely popular with users, marketers and managers of commercial venues. Furthermore, Aquarium was distinguished at the Iberoamérica 2012 XV International Festival, one of the most reputed advertising festivals in Latin America, with an El Ojo Gold in the AdverGames category.

The Aquarium experience lets guests create and customize their own virtual pet fish. Touch consoles, located at each end of the giant virtual aquarium, let guests create their new friend from scratch. After determining what their new pet will look like, guests get to name it and release it into the Aquarium

To date, YDreams’ Aquarium has been implemented at shopping centers in five countries, and was thematically adapted for the Intel stand at Lego World in Denmark for two consecutive years (2012 and 2013).

Below a look at some of the many creations in all five countries:
