Coca-Cola's 'Unlock the Secret Formula' | ADS / INTERACTIVE


Just saw this Coca-Cola 'Unlock the Secret Formula' commercial on TV last night. A delightful homage to the brand's many decades of solid advertising.

The YouTube version comes with some secrets of it's own. Click on the keyhole when it pops up to unveil secret files of Coca-Cola inventor John Pemberton, along with a few other goodies. Nothing too extreme or riveting, but definitely showing off some classy interactive spirit!

Last Stretch: Nintendo 3DS to hit US shelves March 27 | TECH & GAMING

Last week, Nintendo announced the March 27th release date for the long-awaited Nintendo 3DS, for $250. Our panelists have been aching to get their hands on the new mobile gaming device since it was originally announced, back in March 2010. We're sure it's going to be a solid hit for Nintendo, and a major move in the glasses-free 3D entertainment landscape.

In addition to glasses-free 3D, the 3DS comes jam-packed with some pretty kickin features, such as a motion/gyro sensor, a 3D camera, and StreetPass™ technology, allowing users to 'exchange game data like Mii™ characters, high scores, and custom characters with other users you pass on the street' (even in sleep mode). The device also comes with an Augmented Reality card and a couple games to bring your real life surroundings to the virtual 3D world.
