GE’s Smart Grid: Fun with Webcams and Augmented Reality


This little effect dropped my jaw and blew me away. To experience this for yourself (and I highly recommend it), you’ll need a few things: a web camera, a printer, and Flash Player 10.

Visit GE’s Plug Into the Smart Grid, and navigate to the digital hologram area.

Then, follow the instructions and print out the Solar Panel image.

Finally, just pick either the Solar Energy or Wind Turbine option, and hold up the image to your web cam.

Seems to be powered by the FLARToolKit. Never heard of this before, and I’m just amazed by it.
