Adidas Takes ARCommerce to Finish Line

Sign in to follow this  



If you happen to be at a Finish Line store this week, you might notice a display in the center of the shop advertising Adidas’ latest line of kicks. But with this in-store centerpiece there’s more than meets the eye. It’s actually a WebAR installation containing hidden 3D content, all part of its latest campaign: Forever the Future.

Agencies HappyLucky and 14Four are behind the activation, which launched exclusively in four Finish Line store locations last week: Del Amo Fashion Center in LA, Park Meadows Mall in Denver, Water Tower Mall in Chicago, and Roosevelt Mall in Garden City, NY. Check it out:

Shoppers can use their phone to either scan the QR code or type in a URL to enter the web-based experience, then scan signage to activate layers of interactive content. The introduction to the experience reads:

“Inspired by the past and excited for what’s next, this interactive space is designed for experiencing Adidas originals in a new way. Tap to enter below and use your phone’s camera to explore our AR-activated space.”


This WebAR experience utilizes image targets and was built using 8th Wall and a three.js integration.

We love this example of ARCommerce, which is part of a growing trend of in-store activations enhancing the brick-and-mortar shopping experience with digital content. Check out some of the latest ARCommerce activations including LEGO and General Mills’ Fillows Cereal which both leveraged WebAR technology to bring immersive experiences to shoppers.

Do you think AR will enhance the in-store shopping experience? Give us a shout on Twitter @the8thwall.


Adidas Takes ARCommerce to Finish Line was originally published in 8th Wall on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

      Read this first to not waste time
      Hey everyone! I'm basically brand new to game dev, specifically programming which is what I care to specialize in. Currently i'm working on a 3D Tile-based tower defense game in Unity. The plan is to plan for primary monetization on mobile, but it will come to PC too. I probably lack the most skills in the art department, primarily graphics work, but it's not like my modeling is great either. That being said, my main focus is programming so if you read further below and find yourself interested in the project and have a different interest, please let me know!
      Game Info
      TD Game ala Bloons TD
      Towers are based on tiles pre-placed on a grid (plan to add ability to buy tiles, so that tile scarcity can be more of a part of level design)
      No Russian dolling of enemies, different enemies following a difficulty gradient
       flying enemies that normally follow a different path
      Branching, occasionally choice making upgrade branches for each distinctly unique tower. (thinking something like 15 unique upgrades per turret, though that would be tough to come up with)
      Initially planning for 10 distinct level layouts not including an endless survival 'leaderboard' mode
      Seems like it would be silly to not include easy / medium / hard difficulties, just need to think of a way to reward the player for doing so
      Planning to have some long-term progression system. Maybe related to # of kills with a tower. Every 500 kills = 1% fire rate or something like that.
      All current art and models are place holders, screenshots of the project can be provided if you show interest

      Hello everyone,
      I am currently developing a small hobby project called Bolygó. It is a rogue-like dungeon crawling typing game where you get around through typing commands. The twist is the strong focus on "linguistics" as combat commands are like chants and must be performed in a fictional language I created. I have created a project page right here if you're interested in seeing more.
      The game is developed using javascript, so currently it is web-only--I plan to delve into tech like electron to potentially turn it into a standalone version.
      Help wanted: for short, pixel art peeps are welcome. Anyone that'd like to help with drawing the graphics and has a bit of time to spare would be welcome--you'll need to stick to the game's atmosphere however.
      As I have never done pixel art before, my skills are coercively lacking. Thus if anyone with a bit of experience would like to simply provide feedback on my works that would also be a great help.
      Finally, I am not an english  native speaker but I still intend to first develop the game in english. If anyone would like to proofread, help is welcome in that regard too.
      If you possess any other skill you think could be relevant to the project and would like to lend a hand, you are more than welcome to contact me as well! I am open to all suggestions (and anything akin to criticism and feedback)
      Pictures of the current progress made on the game and art are available on the project page linked above. You may also click on the logo (very cool)
      Thank you for taking the time to read. It is a small project but quite a fun one too~

      After about 8 months, I have finished my first ever multiplayer game PiXX.
      Basically everyone colours beautiful artworks together on the same canavas.
      New art is only unlocked when current artworks is 100% complete.
      Come join thousands and colour huge highly detailed pixel art together.

      Hi everyone,
      I'm new to this forum, just getting to know the lay of the land, so I'll just jump in with my question.
      After some intense development period that lasted 10 months, my friend The Programmer and I (The Designer) just launched our first FREE game on GooglePlay, called Starman Journey to Mars. For those interested, you can check it out in the link bellow.
      So now that production is done, we're stuck with the relatively unexpected challenge of actually promoting the game and getting players. To that end we welcome any advice about where we need to go from here and what we need to focus on. Can anyone help point us in the right direction? Any Marketing advice would be worth its weight in gold to us
      So far, our game has been received relatively well on the store but we are also interested in any feedback you might have, should you choose to play it.
      Do you like it? Any strong point or weaknesses we should be focusing on?
      Thanks in advance to anyone willing to take the time to answer or give the game a try.
      Starman Journey to Mars Team
