…T-Post lets you play Rock, Paper, Scissors with your t-shirt?

Rock Paper Scissors T-Shirt

T-Post is a monthly magazine that gets delivered as a t-shirt, with the news story on the inside, and an artist’s interpretation of that new story on the outside.

This month, they’re talking about Higher Education, and Marc Stromberg’s t-shirt design includes an augmented reality tag that allows you to play Rock, Paper, Scissors with a hand that comes out of your chest when you sit in front of a webcam.

Don’t believe me? Check it out:

Now I’m not quite ready to call Augmented Reality clothing a trend, but with the Adidas AR Game Pack and now a shirt that plays Rock, Paper, Scissors, the world of fashion is quickly becoming a world where things aren’t always as they appear.

…Trunk Club is your personal fashion assistant?

 Trunk Club

Trunk Club wants to revolutionize the way that men shop for clothes by becoming the Netflix/Zappos of clothing.

The main benefit of Trunk Club is a personal clothing expert that you can meet with via webcam who will evaluate your style and recommend, find and deliver clothing and accessories that match.

Trunk Club Process

Then, once the clothes arrive, you can try them on and let your personal clothing expert evaluate the fit and style before allowing you to select what you want and ship the rest back for free.

Surprisingly, there are no membership fees or consultation costs, and you just pay the normal retail price for all pieces that you decide to keep. There’s no shipping, no obligation, and no need to ever wade through the mall again.

Still skeptical? Gear Patrol recently gave the service a trial run, and was impressed with the ease of use and the range of choices that were presented. You can read the full review here.

…Webcam music videos are awesome?

Sour shot the music video for their song Hibi no Neiro using just webcams and an amazing amount of coordination and planning, giving the effect of choreography across time and space.

It’s a little hard to describe, so watch and be inspired:

…It’s Website Wednesday: PopScopic?

PopScopic

PopScopic is an interesting mashup that uses augmented reality to enhance your shopping experience.

On PopScopic, you can print out three symbols that are linked to the top ten lists for music, movies and games. Then, just fire up your webcam and put one of those symbols in front of it, and you’ll see the cover art from the top ten list projected in front of you. You can tilt the paper to change selections, and then just tap on the $ sign to visit a page where you can buy that item.

It’s not a world changing experience by any means, but it is a peak into the future of shopping, and it’s fun and easy to play around with, so check it out!

…Papervision brings a virtual creature to life?

Papervision

This “Papervision” creature is quite possibly the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a long time. I kid you not that when I first got it to work, I felt like I was playing around in the future.

To get your own, just visit this page and download and print the required symbol. Then, point your webcam at the symbol and watch the creature spring to life.

It works in real time, so you can move either the camera or the symbol all around and the creature will react accordingly, and it’s even aware of depth, so you can move the symbol close to or away from the camera, and the creature will grow or shrink as if it was a real object.

Amazing!
