Behind the Solution: Microsoft Technology
Build-A-Bear Workshop has found great ways to integrate Microsoft consumer and enterprise technologies to create new value for Guests. Here are the Microsoft software and solutions that help make the process of personalizing the bear fun and engaging for every Guest:
Microsoft Kinect: Build-A-Bear Workshop found a novel use for Microsoft Kinect, the revolutionary motion-sensing technology that lets millions of gamers interact with their Xbox using voice, body movement and gesture. As part of the storefront display, Kinect allows visitors to interact with the digital imagery on the sign.
Microsoft PixelSense: Microsoft PixelSense powers several of the most innovative and interactive aspects of the Build-A-Bear Workshop experience. Microsoft PixelSense allows a display to recognize objects placed on the screen. The individual pixels in the display “see” what's touching the screen and that information is immediately processed and interpreted.
Microsoft Xbox 360: Guests who want to extend their experience online can bring their very own personalized bears into the “Kinectimals Now with Bears” game for Xbox 360. Next
