1st Large Scale Augmented Reality in New Zealand - Vodafone VNZMA App VIDEO

In Vodafone NZ's implementation - claimed to be "the first large scale augmented reality implementation of its kind in New Zealand" - staff in its retail stores have been issued with T-shirts bearing music-related graphics that are recognised by Android and iPhone apps that have been made available for download.  When the app is installed in a phone and its camera pointed at the person wearing the T-shirt, the T-shirt's image appears on the screen of the phone, animated and with accompanying music.  Vodafone developed the app in conjunction with Smudge Apps in Christchurch.
