Augmented Reality Chestburster T-Shirt

Mobile developer Fingerfunk has created a line of very cool T-shirts with a Giger-esque design that comes to life through Augmented Reality. You can see a demonstration of the T-shirt in action in the video below.

The tracking image and T-shirt can be acquired at the developers website here. The Android app can be downloaded for free here. An iOS version has been submitted and is waiting for approval. More information on the design and plenty of behind-the-scenes images can be found here.

Update 29/08/12: The iOS version is now available here.

    Has anyone made a motion tracker for the iPad? I know there's an awesome flux capacitor, but it surprises me me if no-one's done a motion tracker. Especially with a control you can press to stimulate pulse rifle/smart gun fire sounds.

    I remember hearing about someone who kinda did something similar where you didn't need this augmented reaility stuff.

    You wear an ipad on your back and another on your chest, over the ipad is a shirt with a ragged bloody hole front and back.

    Then they connect to each other via facetime.

    Please don't bash me but how exactly does this shirt work? I don't get it.......obviously it doesn't have this effect in real life while you are wearing it. So do you wear the shirt and take videos of it then it inserts the chestburster while recording?
    Sort of. You use your iphone/android's camera to look at the marker image, and then the augmented-reality app recognizes the marker image and overlays the 3D chestburster graphic in real time, so when you move your camera around the chestburster rotates "realistically".

    Looks cool. The thing I don't like is the alien picture it bursts out of. I'd rather have it so it looks like it's bursting through the shirt. Just my opinion other than that it's great.
