Interesting demonstration showcasing how to make real life corporate branding unreadable. A little inconvenient having to wear a head mounted display, but still a cool idea.

Corporate branding and advertisements are ubiquitous in society today and almost impossible to avoid. What if we lived in a world where consumers were blind to this surplus of corporate branding? Brand Killer is a technology demonstration that envisions a future in which consumers can use augmented reality to opt out corporate influence.
