1. Amazing Screen Technology
Samsung teases us with their latest flexible display technology, too bad we can’t get our grubby hands on it just yet. The release of flexible displays is right around the corner, but it will definitely take a few years to develop. During the last CES Samsung showed some demos of actual products with flexible screens, so we’ll be able to recreate the scenes from e.g. Minority Report. So far Nokia has been also busy with similar tech for their handsets. The video was up since 4 December and has almost 1.2 million views. For more Samsung head over to their Facebook and Twitter pages. Just one remark though, one of the top comments under the video – since when the processor and battery became invisible?
2. Skittles Boom Box
It’s time to taste the rainbow again! After some strange commercials, Skittles sent Nathan Barnatt a boombox as a gift and asked him to show it on his YouTube page. As this guy is a really creative mind, it’s not surprising that the video got almost 800,000 views since December 3. If you like this dancing fool, check his Facebook page, follow him on twitter or website.
3. Most Insane Immersive Movie Experience EVER
Watch how this guy’s room transforms into a scene from X-Men, without any SFX, post production, cuts etc. – this is 100% real. Playstation funded this project and provided the PS Move which was attached to the camera to track projections which enhanced the effect and enabled the viewer to look round (virtual) corners. We’ve seen some 3D mapping virals like the one from Nokia last week. This is yet another level of 3D mapping we are anxious to see what the future brings. This viral with more than 630.000 views is first from a series, watch the rest of them at GreatFilmsFillRooms.
4. Old Spice MANta Claus: @beautyjunkies
Old Spice man, Isaiah Mustafa is back! The Old Spice Guy is presenting 7 billion gifts for this Christmas. The campaign from Wieden + Kennedy puts Isaiah in the role of “Manta Claus”, promising to give a present for every single person on the Earth. First on his list is @BeautyJunkies (a beauty blogger who promptly shared that she could happily die now) who received a pretty awesome one. Well If you are a lady, not difficult to understand! Videos have also been posted for the city of Baltimore, 25 of Old Spice Guy’s closest Internet friends, Australia and more are coming every day. So far, just over 29 million have received gifts. The video has reached more than 364.000 views in less than a week. Thanks Manta!
5. Beats By Dr. Dre Studio Color Campaign
Everybody knows that Dr. Dre is one of the best composers of the world, but his headphones line is not so well known. Obviously he wants to change it, also with this colorful and nice slow motion video. A strange thing is that he didn’t go for a hip-hop track but for a dubstep one. His choice worked pretty well with the video going viral with more than 300.000 views in one week. But really, is everyone going for a dubstep music?
