Augmented Reality Flash Mob

If you happen to be in Amsterdam this Saturday (either because you live there or can’t get back home because your flight is canceled), you may want to check out the first AR flash mob. It turns out that in an augmented flash mob, the mob consists of virtual characters bounded to markers:

Sander Veenhof who is behind this interesting event hopes that tourists will opt to take pictures with the virtual characters rather then with the usual “live sculptures”. I personally doubt it, but if you want to take part in this experiment, the precise location and timing can be found here.

  1. It’s not only going to be markerbased. TAB Worldmedia will also make a layer for this and offer people the possibility to add a 3D model on the square aswell.. So it is a multiplatform Flashmob in that sence ;-)

  2. Wheres the details for this? I was going to go but gave up because its so soon and with so little information online
    :-/

    How do I submit my own model? What format?

    “more details soon” still on the site a few days before doesnt inspire much confidence :(
