Brief Explanation

On average, just 6% of fans engage with a brand's Facebook Page after ‘liking’ it. To a brand like Skittles, that’s just terrible. So we created an experience that enabled people to interact with the Skittles brand on Facebook in a way never before possible: we gave them telekinetic powers. To do this, we built WiFi-controlled robots - to which Skittles were attached via magnets. Then we developed facial recognition technology that read users’ eye movements via their webcam, and relayed the commands directly to the robots - enabling the world to move Skittles seemingly with their minds.
