Augmented Reality Tattoo—Holographic Skin Art
Another innovative use of augmented reality - we've seen transparent walls, t-shirts that play Rock, Paper, Scissors, an iPhone operated video game drone; and now, a tattoo that comes to life. Just tattoo a simple "barcode", point a webcam at it, and a flying animated dragon will appear, hovering.
Says Design Boom,
"The augmented reality tattoo is a development by the Buenos Aires based company Think An App, which developed the software to recognize the AR barcode on curved surfaces like the human body. While this concept is a novelty now, this unlocks a range of new possibilities for tattoo art."
