Yesterday Starbucks launched their new Valentine’s augmented reality (AR) cups. It’s quite a clever way to get customers to not only drink their morning coffee but to buy one for a loved one.
All you need to do is download the app from Starbucks and you can “experience your valentine” as the heart on the side of the cup comes to life.
