The South Korean version of the supermarket chain Tesco installed virtual stores in subway stations as a way to provide more shopping opportunities for busy, smartphone-handy commuters. Shoppers browse 2D displays of groceries, scan a QR code to select items and complete their purchase all on their phone. The supermarket then delivers their goods by the time they arrive at home.

In this case, mobile is not only affecting shopping habits in stores, but also allowing for the whole shopping experience to be recreated virtually and on-the-go.

A digital tool for letting out your frustration — just grab your iPhone, hold it tight and shake your fist!!!
These guys (formerly featured on the blog here: http://gspdigital.com/create-your-own-is-parade/) made the app, in their words, “as a way to release for our frustration with the uncertainty of post 3.11 Japan.” Check it out more here: tinyriot.jp

From wallets that help your spending to hula girls that tweet from your carshare, the work of concept artist John Kestner — who uses APIs to “teach” objects how to react to our everyday lives — could be amazing inspiration for DOOH work.

A number of cool augmented reality apps have sprouted up recently that infuse the modern day street perspective with winks to the past — for instance, the Museum of London’s StreetMuseum app.
A similar app, Augmented Reality Cinema, pulls on the heartstrings of cinephiles, playing scenes from famous movies at the location where they were filmed in London. It’s such a simple idea, but also such a satisfying example of how the mobile technology we carry around with us everywhere can provide playful new ways to see and appreciate our surroundings.

8-Bit Invaders is just a simulation, but seems like a stellar idea to project a video game on building. Making it playable would be even cooler.

This cool prototype from Berg plays with the size of tweets in your feed based on how often each person you follow tweets.
Frequent (or “loud”) tweeters’ messages shrink down, while tweets from people who don’t tweet as often expand to take up more space on your screen. By making tweets from the “quieter” folk stand out, Shuush offers a fun, simple twist on visualizing activity on Twitter, bursting with storytelling potential.
