WATConsult launches innovation lab INNOWAT

WATConsult, part of the Dentsu Aegis Network, has opened its own innovation lab, INNOWAT at their Mumbai office.

The lab is designed to use new-age technology, invent and craft innovative products to transform brand experiences and engagement. The entire lab is a place where ideas on paper can be developed into prototypes and then perfected.

The team has already experimented and developed many products. With the use of a motion capture camera from a gaming console they have programmed software that detects gestures to control a video display interface. Using Electroencephalography (EEG) technology developed a game that monitors the eye blink and finishes a virtual bottle of beer with the sensors.

It has developed a race track to slot cars controlled by eye/mind focus with a lap counter to the track that would display on a monitor. Currently they are developing a robot that uses Artificial intelligence to talk to humans. Besides developing such projects, the team has also made use of gadgets such as Drones, Augmented Reality Marker software to display 3D models, Virtual Reality Goggles and even a 3D printer that can create models up to 6 inches tall.

WATConsult has partnered with BITS Pilani, Hyderabad for their upcoming college festival Atmos’16, one of the biggest National Techno-Management Festival in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana. WATConsult will be the exclusive partner to their technical division, Automation and Robotics Club and Programming & Computing lab. The inaugural project will be funded at the upcoming Tech Expo event, part of Atmos’16 festival.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts.
