Love the pep talk he gives you. I don't think this is really his AR business card, just a demo by Aircards.

    Great examples of AR business cardsin your top 10 but I miss my first test of AR-ID platform. A platform where you can make your own Augmented Reality ID. With live twitter and links to facebook, hyves, linkedin and many more features!

      Verschueren- thanks for mentioning your link. Your demo card was nicely done – I like the interaction with your hands, very slick – and the clip explains the possibilities of AR very well. Good work!

    thank you for the link to my website (

    for your users information, you have access to LinkedIn and I’m about to add youtube and facebook (asked by users on the forum) and, a link to any internet file or page so that you can “attach” your resume or your catalog to the business card.

    I have a working live twitter feed but it fail when you have accents (like in French) so I’m stuck on the reason why.

    Thanks for featuring my card on your blog! I’m honored.

    I wanted to let everyone know that I’m working on building a tutorial for my project and making sure everyone can get to my source code easily. A lot of the work for my project went into the character, so that might not actually be covered, but it will show the basics and include my model and texture as well.

    You can follow me on Twitter and I’ll post a link when it’s done. Thank you again.

    Great post, I referenced it in a post I just completed HERE. One of the most interesting things is the relationship between the Internet of Things and Augmented Reality, they seem to be bound by the same fundamental requirements in both technology and adoption. Thanks for the post.

    Now that’s a noticable business card. I wonder if this generation will have those kinds of business cards in the near future.

    So, help me out here. Exactly how is the marker different from simply publishing a link to the same information on your business card? And do people have to hold up your card in front of their webcam for the whole presentation? If so, after about 30 seconds, it becomes a tiresome exercise for the viewer – not a benefit.

    1. Jacob Share

      Brian- the webcam needs the marker to easily recognize the card, to know what to project on screen around the card. In the future, the technology will get better and the recognition probably won’t even require any specific symbol at all, but for now it does.

      A link would just send you to a website, but the whole point here is that when the card is recognized, it is ‘augmented’ digitally on screen. You’re right- you probably don’t want the card augmented in a way that goes on too long, the effect should be cool and quick, but it really depends what you’re using the augmented reality for.
