Snipp Makes Kuwait National Day Come Alive for Baroue With Augmented Reality Magic T-Shirts

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- Snipp Interactive Inc., an international provider of mobile marketing solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE: SPN) announced today that it launched a new augmented reality campaign for Baroue - Let's Play! in honor of Kuwait's National and Liberation Days.

Baroue is Kuwait's first one-of-a-kind 6,500 square meter one-stop-shop for parents and kids, offering a wide variety of products and services for children up to the age of 12, many of which are exclusive only to Baroue.

In this trailblazing campaign, children who purchase a T-shirt with the Kuwaiti flag (available exclusively at Baroue) can watch the T-shirt come alive through the magic of augmented reality. To do so, children need to wear the T-shirt and stand in front of a custom kiosk in the store or use Snipp's Khayal augmented reality application on their smartphone and scan their T-shirt.

Overlaid on their T-shirt they will see an image of a beating heart in the colors of the Kuwaiti flag and an image of the Kuwait City skyline culminating with fireworks. Moms and Dads will then have the option of following Baroue on Instagram (@baroue_kuwait) and are encouraged to take a photo of their kids and tagging it with "#hala_baroue".

"We are super excited to do this campaign with an innovative client like Baroue," said Aya Kabbara, Snipp's Managing Director for the Middle East. "Augmented reality continues to go from strength to strength and Snipp is leading the field in the Middle East. We continue to push the boundaries of what is possible and experiment with how customers respond to these new technologies."

"Children these days consider technology as part of their everyday environment and do not shy away from it," added Baroue's Marketing Manager, Ragheb Khourshid. "We thought the idea of making their T-shirts come to life was a fun and immersive way to celebrate Kuwait's National and Liberation Days. Snipp was able to conceptualize and execute on this fabulous campaign and worked seamlessly with us to turn the idea into reality."

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
