Comic Books are great, but what if there was a way to make them more interactive? This is what Australian artist Sutu is attempting with Modern Polaxis, the story of a paranoid time traveller who keeps his secrets hidden via Augmented Reality technology. The results are pretty spectacular.
The result is a comic book brilliantly enhanced via augmented reality.
It appears to be pretty simple: install an app on your mobile device, buy the comic in question, and simply scan your camera over the comic and watch as it's brought to life on screen.
The project currently has a Kickstarter and is looking for $9000 to try and optimise the whole thing so (in Sutu's words) the iPhone doesn't "shit itself" trying to make the whole AR thing work smoothly. A project well worth helping out I'd say.
