Here’s another post in the drafts section that also didn’t make the posting. Hopefully there’ll be less of a need to ration postings due to severe traffic load.
I saw this 1000heads post a couple of days ago blogged via NokiaInnovation. This is called the Nokia gift machine. It’s a vending machine type thing, powered by foursquare. When you check in, it will release a gift. That’s pretty cool – an actual incentive to use foursquare type check-ins.
Why? It’s part of Social Media Week – and who does Social Media better than 1000Heads word of mouth people?
- Open Foursquare on your phone
- Find the Nokia Gift Machine @ SMW
- Check-in using the #NokiaConnects hashtag
- Share to Twitter
- Collect your prize
Likewise, you could have the same experience with NFC. But this just requires a phone with data.
Update: Oddly enough Nokia’s channel uploaded a video on this
Crickey, check out those iPhone users. Good thing the last one won a Nokia N8
