Pimp My Trading Cards
After several automotive AR demos to download (Mini, Toyota IQ, …) there is a new buddy queueing for attention. Topps Sports Cards offers augmentation for baseball trading cards! There have been different attempts (also AR already) to pimp up old dusty card games, this one is another example for “wow-effect without a cause”. It could get interesting when you could play baseball with the appearing figures on your desktop… Place them in positions and trigger a game… but the way it works right now it’s just simple plain boring independent animations of player’s figures… Let’s hope for more, though!
