That’s Interesting 26.04.19

From Airbnb’s Monalisa sleepover to Carlsberg’s mean tweets, here are some things that made us say “That’s interesting” in the studio this week.

Keep it cool

Body temperature is pretty key when it comes to getting comfortable. But can it be controlled by something other than ramping up the heater/aircon, or dressing more (or less) appropriately? The folks at Embr Labs think so, and they’ve created the first wearable heating and cooling device that does the trick.

Let’s get critical

Carlsberg takes constructive criticism to the next level in its latest campaign. Inspired by the mean tweets segment of Jimmy Kimmel’s show, the brand has created a series of outdoor ads and videos where Carlsberg staff read some of the more brutally honest comments on the beer. The result is both refreshing and witty, and a great way to launch the new, improved recipe.

The helpful elephant in the room

Privacy: it’s high priority in just about every part of our lives these days. And if there’s one place where it is particularly challenging to manage, it’s the internet. Jumbo is an app that helps you do just that: it’s your Privacy Assistant, letting you clean your personal data – across all social media apps and internet services – from one interface.

Sleepover chez Mona Lisa

To celebrate its pyramid’s thirtieth anniversary, the Louvre has partnered with Airbnb to offer an unforgettable experience to two lucky winners. The guests will enjoy an exclusive VIP tour (normally reserved for celebrities and heads of state), toast to the Mona Lisa, dine with the Venus of Milo, jam in Napoleon’s apartments and have the sweetest of dreams under the Louvre’s iconic glass pyramid.
