Healthcare marketing might not be one of the most obvious applications of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technology.
However a new GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) campaign shows the very real potential.
Few underestimate the power of online video. Its importance has been apparent since at least 2006, when Google acquired YouTube in a deal worth north of $1.5bn.
But a lot has changed since then. So much, in fact, that it's worth asking if video is effectively the future of the internet. The answer: perhaps.
Virtual reality is either the emperor's new clothes or the most exciting area of media today.

However, now that the noise around kiosks, beacons and mobile loyalty has died down, it seems a good time to assess the landscape.
For years, brands and publishers in particular have been warned of the dangers of wallowing too far into Facebook.
The rationale was that if brands didn't prioritise their own publishing platforms (apps and websites), they would be vulnerable if Facebook decided to shake things up.
2016, to my mind, has seen the old argument finally put to bed, as Facebook steams into new features and publishers realise the art is in hedging bets and learning as they go.
