Iron Man 2: Augmented Reality App, and Stark Expo Microsite

Now I'm a massive fan of Iron Man, and am looking forward to the new film like you wouldn't believe. In anticipation it helps to have things to pass the time, and that's where these latest little gems come in. The first is an augmented reality app called 'I Am Iron Man', which using face tracking, gesture recognition, video capture allows the user to view themselves as Iron Man, War Machine, or view the HUD display. The video shows it in much better detail than I can explain here, so enjoy...

I think this is a great idea, and personally really like the use of AR to promote movies. Similar to the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: Augmented Reality ‘We Are Autobots’ Campaign, this really is a nice way to build hype and momentum for the film's release and is just a bit of fun people can play with and send to their friends. You can find it here if you want to give it a go yourself, www.iamironman2.com.

This brings us on nicely to the Iron Man 2 Stark Expo microsite which taken from the film allows you to explore the environment, check out the sponsors, and view technology videos of the latest gadgets and gizmo's. The 'viral' videos are built into a Stark Expo branded player and really embraces the film in a pretty cool way.
