'I can't wait to meet you in AR,' the android-pop star says of her collaboration with RYOT and 1RIC.
With an inescapalbe YouTube presence, two full-length albums, more than a million followers on social media and her own online "church," Poppy is already everywhere --and now, the robot-esque pop star is making her way into augmented reality.
Billboard can confirm that Poppy is set to star in the augmented-reality experience A Jester's Tale, premiering at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival as part of the New Frontier program. Viewers will put on AR headsets to be transported into the 12-minute, interactive narrative following a fictional storyline inside a child's bedroom and featuring a slew of character holograms, including Poppy.
A Jester's Tale comes together via RYOT, the Emmy Award-winning content studio under Verizon Media, and 1RIC, the augmented-reality studio led by Asad J. Malik, who recently saw his Terminal 3 AR experience premiere at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.
