Augmented Mustang reality

Remember the when I wrote about this Flash website, that allowed you to drive around with a 3D mustang on the site. That was nice but what this developer has done now is way beyond nice, it’s just totally cool. I already said on my other Twitter account recently that ‘Augmented Reality is the new black’ with several applications showing up online, advertisers taking smart advantage of the technology such as you can see here.

Today my buddy Steven sent me some other cool application… because it was Mustang related. It’s one of the many AR examples I’ve seen lately but must say I find it one of the coolest (yeah even if it wouldn’t have been with a Mustang). It’s much more dynamic that most cases where it just shows a static 3D object. Just like the creator notes:

“In most of the cool AR projects I have seen so far [1] [2] the user is supposed to hold the marker and move it around in front of the camera and the 3d object follows the marker. I had a slightly different idea: why not just leave the marker and the camera in one place and use your keyboard to move around the 3d objects?”

Check it out this video!

    Not bad, but I bet there is even better 3D versions of a Mustang out there.
