This is a pretty futuristic golf bag.
00:02
Any golf in your future?
00:03
I can't even play mini-golf,
00:05
so, probably no golf for me.
00:12
Tell me, what were your considerations
00:14
getting this booth set up?
00:15
I have personally been to the PGA show
00:16
for the last four or five years
00:18
because I knew I was going to get involved in this
00:20
and I wanted to make sure that
00:21
we presented the booth and the product
00:24
the same way we present our brand,
00:25
which is high-tech, innovative,
00:27
great pop, great color, excitement.
00:30
On first glance, I think our bag styling
00:33
is above and beyond what a lot of bags are like
00:36
but when it's closed you can't necessarily
00:38
tell much of a difference, so our model came into play
00:42
with the robot, because we want to make sure,
00:43
in a high-tech way, we told the story
00:45
of how this thing has a function
00:48
beyond just sitting there holding your clubs.
00:50
It has a way of managing your game.
00:51
Some of the guys that I knew did all the costumes
00:54
for Tron and Watchmen and X-Men
00:56
and I thought it would be an awesome concept
00:58
to try and make a female robot to show the functionality.
01:02
And so I said, I want this to be as advanced
01:04
and Tron-like as possible.
01:07
And this is what we came up with.
01:09
The reactions of some of the passersby,
01:13
the looks on their faces, what do you think
01:15
is going through their mind?
01:16
Well, a lot of the times they don't know
01:17
I'm real, which is pretty funny.
01:20
Other than that I think they just think
01:21
that this is probably, like, one of the coolest things
01:23
they've ever seen.
01:24
Obviously, our bag and our product
01:26
represents a change from the norm.
01:27
It is not what people have been used to seeing,
01:29
it is not the way people have been used to managing
01:32
their game, so the subject ranges
01:34
from overwhelming excitement, I can't wait to have it,
01:37
to, I think I'm angry at you 'cause
01:41
you did something that was under my nose
01:42
the whole time and I didn't do it.
