  • Description of the Project:
  • To excite people about Scrabble, we created Scrabble WiFi - a playful way to turn words into WiFi passwords. We encouraged smartphone users in public spaces to create a Scrabble word, and rewarded them with what they needed: a free WiFi Connection. Words' scores were converted into free minutes of internet connection. We wanted to surprise and reach our audience where they weren't expecting to be reached. We did this by utilising 'available networks' pop-up windows on WiFi enabled mobile devices. A branded Scrabble WiFi van travelled around cities, delivering WiFi connections in spaces where people needed it most, proving that words really can unlock a world of fun.
