AR R1 VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE

TaylorMade came to Gravity Jack, eager to provide a cutting-edge way for fans of golf to learn about the extreme level of customization and superior settings, available with the all-new R1 Driver. Using the cover of Golf Digest and a two-page spread on the inside, users scanned an image and instantly viewed a realistic 3D R1 Driver in an interactive augmented reality space. From there, they could spin, zoom, and tap on the driver to learn more about its specifications.

Taking the virtual product display experience to the next level, users can customize settings, just as they would in real life, and even virtually ‘explode’ the club model to view each small detail. Once the settings were set, users could even test a swing with the club on a fully-virtual driving range — learning how each setting affected the distance, loft and more.

FINAL DELIVERY

In an effort to generate buzz and excitement around the announcement and launch of TaylorMade’s next hottest driver, Gravity Jack provided TaylorMade sales reps and customers an exciting first-look of the new club through the AR R1 Virtual Experience. The experience encouraged users to engage with the new driver in an augmented reality space and test within a virtual environment.

The Goal

TaylorMade came to Gravity Jack, eager to drive awareness of and excitement for the new R1 driver, in a way that not only was unlike any other experience consumers had seen, but also generated press and earned media from the launch.

Gravity Jack’s Solution

A custom virtual product display app for iOS and Android that uses augmented reality technology. When the app was used to scan TaylorMade marketing (magazine ads, posters, etc), it triggered a lifelike, 3D model of the driver that can be customized and tested on a virtual driving range.

The Result

The campaign initially had an individual engagement index 42% higher than the industry average and featured over 1,100 articles of press (including nods from Yahoo!, The Boston Globe, ABC News San Francisco and The Boston Globe) in only the first week.
