DEWA – Smart Home
This fully immersive Virtual Reality experience was commissioned by the Dubai Water and Electricity Authority to educate users and raise awareness about their water and energy saving program, TARSHEED. The aim was to design a fun, memorable yet educational experience that would stand out when compared to traditional media and video promotion.
The experience transports users into a modern-day Emirati villa, featuring a variety of interactions. Information hot-spots guide the users through a series of activities designed to showcase DEWA's energy and water conservation tips. The user experience is seamless and intuitive through the sound and visual clues, and the strategically placed information and instruction hotspots.

-Best in the market visuals and sounds, built for a high-quality headset

-In-experience branding (TV plays the real-life DEWA advert, paper on the kitchen table)
