What do you know about augmented reality business cards? Is this a glimpse into the future? Here are a number of video demonstrations I found on YouTube.
In short – – an augmented reality card has a printed target typically printed on the reverse side. When you scan the target with your webcam it displays some sort of 3D (three dimensional) image or simple animation. Consider how this can be used. Is it just a novelty or can you see some practial applications. I’d like to read your comments.
