Become ‘Iron Man’ with Augmented Reality

Not long to go (April 28th) before “Iron Man 2” comes to a theater near you, and to ease the waiting, Marvel and Paramount have a treat in store for you: a very cool augmented reality web experience.

At the UK Iron Man 2 website, by using you webcam, you can get suited up with an Iron Man helmet and experience the HUD (heads up display) through Iron Man’s perspective.
You can even record your interactions and then link to Facebook or Twitter.

It does take a while to render all the video’s of your Iron Man experience, but it is pretty cool!

My guess is that we’ll be seeing a lot more of these AR-applications floaring around on the web, wether for promotional material for films or to create a life-like avatar in a video-game.
