THE TALKING MANNEQUIN

THE TALKING MANNEQUIN

A Talking Mannequin is the perfect promotional tool for use in any setting where customer communication is key. Ideal for museums, car showrooms, reception areas, cinemas, anywhere where you need to communicate to your audience.

 

A Talking Mannequin allows you to effectively promote your products in a unique and innovative way; creating excitement, attracting attention and driving sales at the point-of-sale.

 

HOW IT WORKS

In an in-store environment, for example, a video of a salesperson is recorded in the first instance and the Virtual Screen is laser cut to the exact shape and size of their upper body. 

 

The Screen is then placed on the shop floor on a stand or custom made static display for the lower half of the body. 

 

A rear mounted projector controls delivery of the video to the Screen and synchronises with directional speakers positioned down by the Talking Mannequins feet to bring it to life. The speakers ensure there is no sound interference with the rest of the retail store.

INCREASE SALES

Because they are more appealing than 2-D flat images, our Talking Mannequins can boost real-world traffic, drive sales, increase sales and set you apart from the competition.

 

Our Mannequins are produced using real-life models or any body who is not shy in front of the camera.

FRONT PR0JECTION  TALKING MANNEQUIN

The use of mannequins, once thought of as an oddity for the curious, has evolved into three dimensional displays giving the appearance of live beings.

 

By the projection of an image of a face exhibiting facial movements on a mold formed in the likeness of a human head, the mold takes on the appearance that it is alive and capable of communication.

 

Placement of the molded likeness on a torso simulates a human body and, upon projecting an animated film facial image onto the molded likeness, produces what is referred to as a Talking Mannequin.
