Gestural, thin and iconic: HP notebooks and tablets draw envy from HP Discover 2012 audiences

The ads that you've seen for our cool printers, notebooks and tablet PCs came to life at Wednesday's plenary session at HP Discover 2012 in Frankfurt, when artist RED and DJ Robbie Wilde demonstrated their innvoative uses of HP devices.


At the end of the second-day plenary session the backdrop of the stage opened to reveal RED and DJ Wilde, stars of two of our popular TV ads. Crowds gathered around RED and her art project--a giant dove made out of 1500 sheets of paper printed with feathers. The design is taped together to create a dove seemingly soaring out of the printer. RED created the project using use one HP Ink Advantage Cartridge, one HP printer and 1500 sheets of A4 paper. 


Watch a behind-the-scenes video of how the ad was filmed.



While RED fielded questions from a crowd of curious attendees, "That Deaf DJ" Robbie Wilde entertained audiences with beats created using his HP Envy4 TouchSmart Ultrabook.


The buzz continued to the HP Printers and Personal Systems booths where attendees got to test drive the new HP ElitePad and examine the HP EliteBook Revolve, an ultrathin notebook and a touch-enabled tablet in one.
