FLARB today announced its “Mixed Reality Easter Egg Hunt” has been named an AWE Auggie Award 2017 winner for Best Campaign at the 8th annual Augmented World Expo (AWE) 2017. Taking place June 1 at the Santa Clara Convention Center under the banner “Superpowers to Change the World,” this year’s AWE Auggie Awards ceremony celebrated companies and products deploying a full spectrum of AR & VR technologies designed to drive economic growth and shape the future of computing.
The Best Campaign winner, “Mixed Reality Easter Egg Hunt,” took participants on a whimsical journey through a real-life enchanted forest to find holographic Easter eggs using the mixed reality Microsoft HoloLens headset. Using real-world objects and settings in an unprecedented way, the “Mixed Reality Easter Egg Hunt” attracted thousands of attendees to the VRLA expo in Los Angeles.
“As game developers, we’re always looking for new and novel ways to use the incredible technology available to us,” said Ralph Barbagallo, lead developer of the project and founder of FLARB. “The “Mixed Reality Easter Egg Hunt” is this the first experience of its kind, and thanks to the AWE Auggie Awards, it will definitely not be the last!”
“This year’s crop of contestants was fierce, with every company submitting ingenious ideas and experiences worthy of recognition in this evolving industry,” said Ori Inbar, founder and executive producer of AWE. “AWE’s Auggie Awards gives the AR + VR community the kind of visibility and validation that can easily turn into the next ‘big thing’ for enterprise, businesses and consumers, and we thank all of our entrants, judges, sponsors and partners for supporting the 2017 contest.”
