As reiterated by PayNet’s spokesperson: We wanted to give Malaysians a little something extra to be excited about this Chinese New Year, and an interactive AR experience at a prime location in Kuala Lumpur seemed like the perfect idea. Our Sure Can campaign aims to encourage Malaysians to make payments using DuitNow QR so that they can have the ultimate convenience when it comes to shopping.”

Anyone can access this filter by heading over here or DuitNow’s Instagram page, @duitnowmy, and selecting the filter in the filter tab. Next, point the camera at the image below to enjoy the augmented reality experience, without having to leave home.

What makes this even more impressive is the fact that this one-of-a-kind AR mapping has never been done for an outdoor billboard of this scale in Malaysia before. With AR interactions normally confined to much smaller real estate such as brochures or ang pao packets, DuitNow QR commissioned Dreamsmind by DreamsKingdoms to take on the task of bringing this to life. 

To make it as realistic as possible, DreamsKingdoms opted to shoot real world footage of a lion dance combined with 3D ambience as opposed to the norm of using full 3D animation, with the end result ultimately paying off.

Head on over to the 3D CuBig KLCC Billboard at Jalan Ampang and interact with it via the Instagram filter to experience a ‘roarsome’ interactive Chinese New Year or share the auspicious greeting with friends and family and make this Chinese New Year EXTRA HUAT!
