The digitized doggy.

Here’s some really cool technology that will surely be used for advertising purposes in about 3.5 seconds. It’s a digital window display with a 3D animated pooch that, using sensors, can interact with passers-by.

Small infrared sensors and cameras allow the virtual pet to follow you around, anticipate your movements and react to your gestures. You can see a demonstration here.

It’s currently an art installation called Sniff, but I guarantee you there are creatives at agencies right now figuring out how to turn this into a storefront video game, an interactive product demonstration, or a virtual vacation experience.
