EVOC Promotes Protective Backpack with Indestructible Billboard

Evoc Indestructible BillboardGermany’s Evoc is a manufacturer of premium backpacks and protective equipment for outdoor sports enthusiasts. Their backpacks feature an integrated back protector that can absorb nearly 80% of the impact to the wearer’s back. The protective technology could prevent countless spinal injuries.

To create awareness and demonstrate the strength of Evoc’s integrated back protector they created a unique interactive billboard. Passerby were invited to punch, kick, head-butt an Evoc backpack that had been attached to the billboard. Sensors measured the energy of each impact as well as how much energy was absorbed by the back protector. The results were updated to the Evoc Facebook page in real time and then shown ranked on a leaderboard. An image of each participant was captured at impact which they then could tag and share with their social networks.

The Indestructible Billboard was created by Publicis Munich.
