Worlds First Augmented Reality T-Shirt

Screen shot 2010-01-28 at 1.47.09 AM

This wonderfully innovative T-Shirt from T-Post includes an interactive game of Rock, Paper, Scissors in what has got to be one of the most fun demonstrations of augmented reality ever.

T-Post itself is worth mentioning as they describe themselves as the first wearable magazine, which I guess is another way of saying it’s a t-shirts subscription service. You pay your subscription fee and get a t-shirt in the mail every 6 weeks. T-Post does have it’s own style and you can look through back issues to get an idea of what kind of stuff they do. Here’s their video explaining the process.

If you’re a T-Shirt company it may be worth setting up a subscription based line of shirts because it really suits the economics of T-Shirt printing, in other words you only print as many t-shirts as you have subscribers, no unsold stock :) Threadless does a line called the 12 club (one T-shirt a month) as does the company Social-T’s, both worth checking out.

This Belgian SQL Server User Group has put together a wonderful demonstration of Augmented Reality using some Microsoft Technology called Augmented Vision using T-Shirts. This was inspired by a marketing campaign that McCann Erickson Belgium had put together.

You can actually try it out yourself by going to sqlug.be page and follow the instructions on the page, it is amazing.

Maybe T-Shirts really can change the world :) in which case here’s one to get started from NIKKI FARQUHARSON who is a designer from Scotland who also runs a site called randomgotbeautiful.com

You can buy the shirt from Holiday Matinee here

The [Holiday Matinee] Artist Series was founded on a simple premise: For every t-shirt you purchase, we donate 100% of proceeds to plant, maintain and protect trees. Did you know that trees help lower your carbon footprint, improve air quality and can reduce your utility bill? Purchasing just one of our shirts will help plant twenty trees. It’s that simple, plus all shirts are tag-free and 100% organic.
