Gettin Pix' done.

#animatedtattoo #Augmentedreality

I've been on a bit of an augmented reality trip lately and the latest thing to pop up in my inbox has me kind of wanting to get a tattoo.

So this first video is actually an augmented reality tattoo. The design of the tattoo is simple, But the augmented reality takes it a step further. I'm not all that impressed with the quality of the animation itself, however this was made in 2009 so surely someone could come up with a more complex version by now.

This isn't technically augmented reality, its done using QR Codes (Quick response barcodes)
If you don't already have one, you can get an app to read them from:
Here for iPhone.
Here for Android.
(This code will take you to the wikipedia page about QR Codes.)

So basically this is a normal tattoo with an addition of a QR Code. Just watch the video and you will see.

If you are interested in getting an augmented reality tattoo or something with a QR code that takes you to a 3D animated youtube clip. Let us know, I have a 3D artist who is wanting to design an augmented reality tattoo for someone, if you want to be his guinea-pig.
