ASUS Announces Zoom To Wanda
Epic online game starring fictional blogger Wanda invites players to celebrate ZenFone Zoom by hunting for clues in stunning extreme-resolution gigapixel photos
India, 21 March, 2016 — ASUS today announced Zoom to Wanda, an intriguing interactive hunt, featuring the new ZenFone Zoom. ZenFone Zoom marks a new era in smartphone photography with the world’s thinnest optical zoom mechanism to enable both magnification of distant subjects and close-up shooting of small objects in incredible detail. Using this as its inspiration, the enthralling Zoom to Wanda game invites participants to travel and explore the world in detail as an investigative journalist in search of the mysterious Wanda.
Zoom to Wanda: An open invitation to explore the world and all its impressive detail
Zoom to Wanda is a passport to explore the world, presented in gorgeous gigapixel images, while chasing down a true wanderluster – Wanda. The game is based on a character named Wanda who, armed with an adventurous spirit, insatiable curiosity, and her ASUS ZenFone Zoom, is travelling the world and sharing her exotic travelling and dining experiences on her blog.
Zoom to Wanda instantly turns participants into investigative journalists tasked with following critical clues to chase down Wanda as she wanders through the most charming streets and indulges in the world’s best food. Tracking her down is a visually engaging experience, involving audiences zooming in on countries, cities and impressive monuments to uncover her trail.
Gigapixel glory: Explore the world’s incredible detail in extreme resolution
Inspired by ZenFone Zoom’s incredible 12X-magnification capability, ASUS has used gigapixel-photo technology to create the Zoom to Wanda experience, immersing participants in incredible experiences in India, Italy, Japan, and beyond. ZenFone Zoom fans can explore these beautiful cities from a bird’s eye view and then zoom down to street level — all made possible by extreme resolution imagery.
Join in to win: 20 lucky participants will each win a ZenFone Zoom
The Zoom to Wanda online challenge will run from today, March 21, 2016 until April 17, 2016 — and is open to players around the world. There is no charge for entry. Following the competition’s climax, the 20 participants with the highest scores will each be awarded a brand-new ZenFone Zoom.
