1. THE BEGINNING
This innovation initially came to life when…
This innovation, initially came to life when founder Ben Thomas found media navigation on mobiles irritating and clumsy. He thought that mobiles are not small desktops – they have unique properties and abilities. He thought that mobiles can be moved in the hand and also have very advanced sensors. So Ben developed a way to navigate multimedia by tilting the phone like a joystick.
Two business direction pivots later we decided that this technology is perfect for mobile advertising, especially e-commerce focused, full-screen video ads.
The purpose of this innovation is to…
The purpose of this innovation is to enable non-technical marketers to create highly immersive mobile ads. Tiltsta is an interactive mobile advertising platform used by agencies to easily create highly engaging tilt-interactive mobile video ads (world first).
It does this by…
Trigger social app and phone actions during full screen video without touching the screen. On iOs and Android touch during video normally triggers fixed responses – however, Tiltsta facilitates low level code to directly access device motion sensors and recognises particular movements to control multimedia and triggering actions, e.g. placing items in a shopping cart while video plays.
3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because it adds a very tactile element of control. Moving the phone like a joystick around a shopping experience does not feel like advertising. More importantly it enables the agency to directly monetise the Social Media reach – removing the traditional gap between branding and transaction.
Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…
Hundreds of tests have shown that users feel more in control. Especially female testers responded that current online shopping carts are boring and task focused but shopping is about fun and inspiration. Tiltsta ads are immersive fun.
