Experience the Advanced Functions Through an All-New Style – An Interactive Experience Exhibiting an Artistic Atmosphere

The Galaxy Studio is located on the ground floor of Tower 535 in downtown Causeway Bay. Using vivid colors as the main interior palette, the design embodies a contemporary style. Stepping into the Galaxy Studio, the three-dimensional artistic decorations hanging from the ceiling attract attention, complementing the Galaxy S10 series’ prism colors. This pop-up Galaxy Studio breaks the existing boundaries, adding many creative and artistic elements. Whether it is the interactive experience zones or photo booths, Galaxy Studio has injected phenomenal visual artistic effects, allowing participants to gain an unforgettable experience whilst testing the Galaxy S10 that is equipped with professional cameras and advanced intelligence technology. 

Firstly, visitors will register at the check-in counter to get a Galaxy S10 smartphone that has “Galaxy Buddy” app installed. It acts as the participant’s partner, leading them through different experience zones. After completing an experience, participants will receive a digital stamp through the Galaxy S10’s NFC tag function. Participants may redeem gifts after collecting 4 digital stamps.

Four Interactive Experience Zones

- Field of Hearts: Participants first use the “Galaxy S10” to measure their heart rates. After entering the room, they can enjoy a personal, interactive media art portrayal of their heart rates by just tagging their smartphones to the NFC stand. Participants can interact and share their heartbeats through a light field of different colors and frequency. The experience can be perfectly captured through Galaxy S10’s F1.5 and F2.4 Dual Aperture lens, where it is able to capture the light-source in low-light environments. Together with the excellent performance of the 123 degrees Ultra-Wide angle lens, the captured scene is flawless.

- Ocular Odyssey: Participants take a selfie through their “Galaxy S10” to capture the image of their eyes before entering the experience zone. Once entered, participants tag their phones to the NFC stand and the interactive media art using the user’s eye image will start. Images of participants’ eyes will turn into a kaleidoscopic art on the screens that are reflected on all the fragmented mirrors. Participants can take photos with the Live Focus camera feature to capture the enchanting experience.

- Artist in Residence: The interior is decorated with photo backdrops and props by local famous illustrator b.wing, becoming the highlight of Galaxy Studio. Participants can try the Galaxy S10’s ultra-wide angle camera to capture panoramic photos equivalent to what the naked eye observes. b.wing’s works depict our own fantasy world using simple lines and vivid colors. It is quirky yet interesting, and is also known for characters with dark circles, expressing the meaning of life.

- Galaxy Studio provides a resting space within the busy city, placing many colorful bean bags to create a comfortable and relaxing living space to showcase the new Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds etc., allowing the public to try a variety of exceptional functions in a comfortable environment.
