Samsung Stunt Offers Free Galaxy S4 If You Can Stare at It for 60 Minutes [Video]

Posted by · 22662 views · Translate

Samsung set up a stunt in Zurich where it promised a free Samsung Galaxy S4 to anyone who could stare at the device for 60 minutes straight.

The challenge used the technology behind 'Samsung Smart Pause' (which when watching a video will pause when you look away) to detect when eye contact was broken. As if staring at a screen for an hour wasn't hard enough, Samsung also introduced numerous crazy distractions to make things more difficult.

Find out how people in Zurich used their eyes to win a Samsung Galaxy S4 of their own. It's inbuilt Smart Pause function means the S4 knows when someone is looking at it. The longer a participant stares at the screen, the bigger the discount is. But watch out! The game ends the moment eye contact ends. An S4 was handed out for free after 60 minutes.

Take a look below...

Stop the presses! Samsung finally used an original idea! As much as I hate gagsung, I really liked the marketing strategy. Now if they can only continue to be original.
