Synopsis:
GE wanted to talk about their revolutionary Digital Twin technology, which creates a virtual clone of industrial machines in order to predict and prevent issues. Our challenge was to make this technology both relevant and compelling to the average person.
We decided to turn science into science fiction by creating a podcast called LifeAfter. The 10 episode series explored the potential consequences of sharing so much of our lives online by imagining what could happen if it got into the wrong hands - and how GE Digital Twin technology could protect humanity from a rogue computer program that communicates by re-animating the voices of the dead.
We brought the experience to life by creating LifeAfter’s fictional social media site, where fans could unlock additional messages from the characters.
The results were that it got the attention of Neil deGrasse Tyson and enough other sci-fi lovers that it got downloaded 1.6 million times.
