GE's augmented reality website - solar panels

    Newer Older

    GE has a cool augmented reality Flash app. It's promoting their Smart Grid technology and progress. It doesn't show you how anything works, or anything you don't already know about (solar panels at wind turbines), but it's very awesome. Expect to see more like this in the future.

    Here's how it works:
    1. Print out the black and white sheet of paper that has a black square on it - they have it as a PDF.
    2. Access the website and select the renewable energy type.
    3. Allow the Flash app access to your webcam.
    4. You will appear on your screen. As soon as you hold up the piece of paper you printed, the awesomeness will unfold - virtually.
    5. You can turn the piece of paper and the "hologram" will turn with you.
