Hacker’s Cafe Celebrates Virtual Tokyo with Augmented Reality Game

Via Hacker’s cafe

Hacker’s Cafe celebrated Virtual Tokyo day with an augmented reality game  dubbed – by the Japanese tradition – Cyber Star Rally Challenge.

Hackers hacked some virtual stars in a city square and let loose a pack of other hackers riding hacked MTBs, armed with GPS’, Google 3D view and a (hacked) augmented reality software.

They were tasked with one mission only: collect as many stars as possible.

You have to see it to believe it:

How did it work?

Your guess is as good as mine.

(unless you can read the instructions in Japanese)
