Chevy Sonic 3-D Interactive Projection Billboard

The world's largest 3-D interactive projection billboard was created to promote the Chevy Sonic on the Roosevelt Hotel in Las Vegas.

Hollywood Boulevard was taken over last week, where they re-created the giant-sized, 3D version of the old-school claw game in front of the famous Roosevelt Hotel. Passers-by were given a chance to use a human-sized joystick to direct the claw which was projected onto the side of a building and had a chance to win an array of prizes including a $4,000 vacation, a Burton snowboard, and one for lucky person, a 2012 Chevy Sonic.

The project was the work of Goodby Silverstein & Partners and Pearl Media. "With Pearl's innovative approach to experiential advertising and Sonic's willingness to try 'firsts,' we at Chevy wanted to take the partnership into groundbreaking territory. So we added the real-time experiential claw-game piece," said Kevin Mayer, Chevrolet's director-advertising and sales promotion. "Sonic is up for any challenge, and Pearl's Claw Game pushed the Sonic into a new gaming realm that combined old-school fun with cutting-edge technology."

The famous Roosevelt Hotel is no stranger to being used for 3-D projections, Lexus put a twist on traditional Earth Day activities when it brought Earth Night to Hollywood as part of the launch of the all new CT 200h. Lexus transformed The Roosevelt Hotel with a 3D projection featuring architectural light mapping technology. Using state-of-the-art projection, lighting, shadows and 3D animation, the imagery popped from the walls and windows of the hotel to animate the landmark.

Pearl also did one for the release of the X-Men film on the Roosevelt.
