Tough Love: VW Uses Mobile AR To Launch Beetle (Video)


Gotta love this new mobile augmented reality experience from VW.

It does involve a special app - which is asking a lot of consumers. But for those interested enough to download it, the experience is fun, lively and goes at least a little way in helping Beetle seem more modern and (almost) masculine. (You can see some of the individual AR experiences by using the interactive functions in the video above.)

I do hope the app comes with a dealer locator and the ability to customize a Beetle using AR, along with the ability to schedule a test drive.

This particular initiative is from Canada, and is part of a larger social+mobile+who knows what else that will run through November 26.

What's your take? Does it get you revved up for the Beetle? Or inspiration in reverse?
