Magic Billboards, Fallon gets Unilever, Liveable Cities, VW Facebook

New software has been created by Singapore‘s Agency for Science, Technology, and Research that would allow billboards to identify a person’s gender based on his or her face. The technology from A*Star is only able to differentiate between the sexes if a person is looking at the camera.

Fallon has secured a position on the Unilever roster after being appointed to handle the company’s corporate digital brand strategy. The agency secured the business after a three-way shoot-out against Bartle Bogle Hegarty and Razorfish. Fallon will produce an overarching strategy to reinvigorate the way Unilever behaves in the digital space. Its first task will be to reassess Unilever’s main online presence, unilever.com.
Monocle Magazine have announced their annual index of most liveable cities. Zurich comes in top place mainly for its vast investment in transport; Copenhagen is second for its mix of metropolitan life, great healthcare, low crime rates and a relaxed vibe; at 3, Monocle describes Tokyo as the world’s most livable megapolis and praises the city’s commitment to plant 1 million trees; 4th is Munich which blends history and innovation with ease and is generally a good place to do business; and Helsinki comes 5th partly because it has no Starbucks.
Actually quite a good Facebook page from VW. I am apparently “Sporty”…Spezify

The Other Britain, Virtual New York

Ogilvyone Worldwide Singapore has recently launched a website to promote Britain abroad and drive floods of tourists to the island. When you think about Britain, you usually think about The Queen, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Madame Taussauds and, of course, of fish & chips. This website is designed to make you change your mind.
