The Mill’s experiential and interactive team teamed up with Nike’s North America retail experience design team to collaborate on an installation for their flagship store in NYC that celebrates the unique performance benefits of the new Nike Joyride product line.
The Nike Joyride Trial Experience playfully and scientifically explores Nike’s latest innovation; The Joyride Running Shoe, through three immersive games that inspire running, jumping, bouncing and laughter.
The experience takes the form of a ‘Testing Facility’; a structure outfitted with a reactive floor that creates a playground for three games. The games are specifically engineered to create a visceral experience of the product’s benefits and innovative design, awarding players with digital beads, which accrue in a giant interactive digital ball pit.
Users check-in and are outfitted with a pair of Nike Joyrides. Three at a time, they play a series of three games inspired by carnival amusements, traditional children’s games and agility exercises, winning digital beads along the way. Users can share their experience via a social media generator that captures them in the action and publishes content for them to share.
