An Interactive Birthday Party for Uncle Sam
Client: US Consulate in India
Objective: To share US history, culture and values with the people of Mumbai in fun and entertaining ways.
Product: Magix Fone
Brief: Among the primary charters of the US Consulate in India is to deepen the connection between the people of the two countries. They carry out several activities intended to promote greater understanding of the history, culture and values of USA. One of these events was a day-long celebration of the US Independence Day in one of Mumbai’s major shopping destinations. The event was packed with several fun activities and one that caught everyone’s eye was the US Knowledge Quiz. This was a game show themed Trivia Quiz that came alive as members of the audience phoned in, well sms’ed in, their answers to the questions related to history and culture of US that came up on the screen using the interactive capabilities of the MagixFone. This allowed simultaneous participation of many visitors thus engaging a much larger portion of the audience than would otherwise have been possible. The operating principle being the more the merrier – it is a birthday party after-all !
Impact: The MagixFone enabled much wider audience participation and education via gamification – a key benefit for an event held in an outside location over a limited period of time.
