The firm created and developed their unique digital kissing booth, and on Friday, February 14 from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., the public will be able to go to kps3.com/kiss, make a donation and get a “kiss” from a KPS3 employee. Each donor then receives an animated GIF of their kiss via email. All donations will go to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and The Children’s Cabinet, and KPS3 will give a matching donation of up to $2,500 per non-profit.

To develop this complex promotion, KPS3 utilized cutting-edge technologies, including two Raspberry Pi’s, Python for the main app, a Mongo database, Redis for live stats, and Stripe to process the donations. KPS3 will produce the GIFs using ffmpeg and imagemagick on the agency’s Node Server. You can visit kps3.com/kiss to learn more about the booth, the kissers and the charities.
