Positivity Pump

The Story

For positivity week, Chevy wanted to takeover various gas pumps around the world. These pumps were specially fitted with iPad Pros, and instead of cash or credit, a user could use their Facebook or Twitter feed to pay for gas. The app would search through the consumer’s feed and determine how positive of a person you were based on your status updates. The more positive you were the more free gas you would receive. Behind the scenes was a secondary web app where an operator (and film crew) could review the incoming sentiment analysis, guiding the operator to select a unique reward to be printed out onto their receipt. These rewards would guide users to #FINDNEWROADS.

The Challenge

Multilingual native iPad Pro application with external web based API access.
