I wish colleges had this when I was looking

It’s been years since I was applying to college and one of the things I remember most is the unintentional comedy of student life brochures with the most goofy, pc-looking, and blatant attempts to exhibit diversity even when it didn’t exist. The future looks brighter today with schools like Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) using AR technology to help prospective students take virtual tours using a smartphone and inexpensive cardboard headset.

After trying the tour, I could definitely see how it might be useful to figure out which schools you want to visit in person. They’ve also made the actual print brochures more interactive by weaving 1,000 custom videos, graphics, and animations into the experience when you hold a smartphone over the page.

If you want people to believe you are going to teach them what they need to know in the future (and spend a bunch of money to do so), you had better be using the tools that are available today.

If you stumbled upon an Oreo vault…

What could possibly be inside these top-secret Oreo vaults? I’m not at liberty to say but damn it’s good.

Here’s how you educate kids about organ donation.

Old toys receive donated limbs to educate kids about organ donation. This is a conversation that needs to happen more often between parents and kids – and this campaign is nothing short of brilliant. [via]
