A Japanese company is offering to pay individuals to walk around Tokyo as walking advertisements.
Those participating in the opportunity will be required to download an app called Stchar and wear a unique Stchar backpack that includes a clear pocket. Participants will place an iPad into the backpack’s pocket to display advertisements through the app while walking around Tokyo.
The Stchar backpacks can be purchased for free on the Stchar website during their launch event; however, they are currently out of stock at the time of this writing. The company is expected to be restocking the backpacks sometime in the future and plan to hold an event where the backpacks and iPads can be rented for free.
The service will be launching on June 4, and participants will be paid through the digital wallet platform Kyash. Stchar will also be regularly updating their Google Map to display available working areas.
