Want to transform yourself? We are autobots, become a transformer

Augmented reality is one of the coolest technologies around. For the ones unaware of the concept, augmented reality is, by the definition on Wikipedia, a field of computer research which deals with the combination of real-world and computer-generated data (virtual reality), where computer graphics objects are blended into real footage in real time. Currently, the main application for this technology are simulations with testing purposes, like airplane or car simulations, but in the future some more exciting stuff is about to happen. It's a very good subject to read about... In weareautobots.com, augmented reality is used in advertising, specifically in a movie promotion. Using your webcam you transform yourself in Optimus Prime, the leader of Autobots. Click on the symbol over the webcam image and try some even coolest stuff, like having Bumblebee on the palm of your hand...

  1. Nice site that. I couldn't believe that really exist a cool thing like that. It could be nicer if I could see my hand or objects in the front of "face"(robotic face). A bad thing is that if I move quick the mask dissapears. But I believe they'll solve that problem.

  2. This is really nice to know about such sites,I hope some day I can see myself as the character in screen and that should move just like I want it to move,that will be a great experience to see myself on my computer screen.

  3. Ive found this blog after reading the info from http://www.blogmastermind.co.uk ( this is a direct link or click on my name for the site, same link )

    Surely your blog is going to be bombarded with automatic posts when people start realising their earnings from this type of software.

    Now I know how it all works, will I be able to post affiliate links in these blogs??

    =) thanks. Rach.x
