PR-Augmented Reality Catalog - Hammacher Schlemmer, 2 Dec 2014 [cached]
"It's the next best thing to visiting our landmark Manhattan store in person," explained Rich Tinberg, Hammacher Schlemmer's CEO.
After downloading the free Hammacher Schlemmer app for iPad, users simply scan specially marked catalog pages to overlay a three-dimensional image of a product that literally jumps off the page. Users can zoom in and out, spin the item 360º, play videos, and easily access helpful information such as user manuals and customer reviews with just a touch. Items can even be purchased directly from the app.
"Our new Augmented Reality Catalog fits right in with our rich tradition of innovation," said Mr. Tinberg.
"We are very pleased to offer our customers this new technology that blends the familiarity of our catalog with the multimedia capabilities of the iPad", said Mr. Tinberg.

The copy is important, it is "vital to our tone," says Richard Tinberg, Hammacher's CEO. "We avoid superlatives, we check the facts. If a company makes a claim about a benefit their product provides, we ask for the scientific studies that back it up. We are sitting beside a burbling brook, Tinberg and I, inside Hammacher's headquarters in Niles, a Chicago suburb 20 minutes northeast of O'Hare by car.
Hammacher's longtime chairman, Dominic Tampone, had a saying, "an axiom, a tenet," Tinberg tells me: "If it's not electric, make it electric.
Maybe we didn't have the unexpected yet," Tinberg says, referencing the company's tagline -- Offering the Best, the Only, and the Unexpected -- "but that came to be over time."
Toward the end of 1982 Tinberg became president. "It was a monumental task," he says.
Sharper's founder, Richard Thalheimer, "his strategy was to be able to change his strategy," Tinberg says.
Tinberg pauses and squints out into some vague distance beyond his wireframe glasses. He's wearing a pinstripe suit, tall and elegant with a face defined by its brow, long and broad. A Hammacher man. We listen to the stream for a spell. I ask what companies he looks upon as kindred spirits. "Banana Republic, in the early days.
But mostly the cover items need to surprise, delight, and intrigue, Tinberg says. The need to surprise transcends sales, even; there are cover items that do not sell at all. Sometimes, however, a cover item sells far better than planned. The hovercraft is one example. The first time the company put one on the cover was in the 1980s, and it ended up a blockbuster -- several dozen sold. "People were just sending us $6,000 checks in the mail," Tinberg says, sounding as surprised and delighted today as he surely was when the checks came in.
