Samsung Introduces Life Unstoppable: ‘House of Surprises’ – An Immersive, Virtual Experience That Showcases Samsung’s Powerful Ecosystem of Connected Devices
Samsung has launched Life Unstoppable 2021, which this year takes the virtual experience one step further with a colourful and stylised mini-movie that tours the iconic Samsung ‘house of surprises’.
Our homes have become everything to us in the last 18 months – transforming into schools, offices, gyms and entertainment spaces. Although with so much time spent within our four walls, the home has also become a little too comfortable, with many Europeans in need of a reset. This year’s Life Unstoppable experience seeks to spark inspiration for those seeking to innovate their home experience, with products that enable consumers to once again ‘press play’ on a life of wonder and delight.
Life Unstoppable: ’house of surprises’ follows a family of eclectic characters, on a journey through their vibrant home, demonstrating the ways in which Samsung’s connected ecosystem of devices allows the family to unearth their inner creativity, passion and fuel a Life Unstoppable.
Life Unstoppable: ‘house of surprises’ is the first feature mini-movie of its kind for the brand, bringing technology to life in ways never seen before. The experience tours six different rooms in the ‘house of surprises’, with interactive vignettes each showcasing a collection of truly connected Samsung products, that fuel a much-needed reset of joy and inspiration in the home – from mobile screens that flip and fold, to immersive TVs that take your breath away, and home appliance innovations that bring a new spark to even your least favourite tasks.
“At Samsung, we develop innovations that go beyond what people expect. From folding phones to TVs that show art when switched off and washing machines that get your clothes faster by only using the amount of time, detergent and water actually needed,” said Dudu Mokholo, Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung Africa. “With the Samsung ‘house of surprises’ we are showing how our connected products bring innovations that help customers to live a Life Unstoppable.”
Samsung products and services are spotlighted in the immersive and colourful ‘house of surprises’, through brand spokespeople and the eccentric Unstoppables family: Gym-Buff Dad, Rockstar Mom, Magician Archie, Superstar Chef Evie and former Lucha-Libre Wrestler Gran.
Throughout the experience, attendees are immersed in a series of vignettes, each showcasing the full capabilities of Samsung’s 2021 product line-up for inspiring joy in the Unstoppables’ lives:
The almost magical modularity of the Bespoke Refrigerator is brought to life when budding chef Evie runs out of room for the evening feast and her magician brother astonishingly adds another module to the unit.
Curious Incident of the Snowing Cake
The Unstoppables put the Samsung Bespoke Jet™ to the test when Evie’s snowing cake creation causes a wintery mess in the kitchen. Can the Samsung Bespoke Jet™ handle the heat or lack of?
Step into the Action
The family is transported into the action with The Premiere – Samsung’s lifestyle projector, and Q800 Soundbar at one of the famous Unstoppables’ movie nights, with truly immersive entertainment that creates laughter, tears and everything in between.
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Gaming Monitor puts Dad one step ahead of the competition, as he leads his team to victory with a dynamic curved screen that enables him to fully execute his battle plans.
Lost in Music
Mom is immersed in her favourite musical moments on the true-to-life Neo QLED TV and Q950 Soundbar, which join Samsung’s other immersive QLED TV’s, The Frame – with unique personalised bezels – and The Serif, in the ‘house of surprises’, as she indulges in a dance party. But not wanting to rock out on her own, she dials some of her best friends into the fun thanks to Google Duo on her Galaxy Z Flip3.
The second edition in the Life Unstoppable series fuses storytelling and entertainment together in an interactive digital experience, which blends a range of Hollywood and digital techniques to place attendees in the heart of the narrative. Added interactive layers enable guests to engage with the movie in real time, creating a unique and disruptive experience, underpinned with the creative use of technology.
