Virtual fridges at Gatwick airport
Tesco are trialing ‘virtual fridges’ at Gatwick airport, allowing travellers to order their groceries online for delivery when they return from holiday by scanning an interactive display with a smartphone app. Whether you think it’s genuinely useful or just a PR stunt, a similar offering in South Korea has generated 55,000 customers to date. Will we be ordering our groceries at bus stops and tube stations in the near future?
Remote control Minis
You may have noticed some rather mini Minis collecting javelins, discus and other field throw-ables at the London 2012 Olympics. The RC cars were supplied by BMW, and made for a fun yet practical PR for the brand.
