Description of the Project:
Although virtual reality will soon be everywhere, right now only early adopters and hardcore tech enthusiasts have the necessary hardware. But just about everyone has a smartphone. So we developed ANTIdiary as a mobile virtual reality experience. No apps, no headsets.
Galaxy owners could follow Rihanna’s journey through 8 virtual rooms, and explore these 360º environments simply by moving their phone around – no apps or headsets required.
Guided by a series of cinemagraphs, the story unfolded in any direction they chose. They uncovered clues, met characters, solved mysteries, even followed the trail out into the real world.
When curious fans started hacking into the source code, we planted more clues there, including a unique substitution cypher, ASCII images, and exclusive photos of Rihanna.
At the end of the journey was the thing everyone was waiting for: ANTI. Rihanna’s most personal album yet, with an exclusive download for Galaxy owners.
