|A sample of a child who tried out AR technology at Cartoon Network.
If your child is a fan of Generator Rex, you'll want to check out the Cartoon Network website for some exciting interactive activities.
At the website, children can now check if their bodies are hosting “nanites” - microscopic machines - via a new augmented reality (AR) application.
Developed by the world’s pioneer in augmented reality, Total Immersion, the animation used in the AR application is cutting-edge. It allows users to move close up and away from the computer screen and provide unprecedented 360° views.
Note: You need to have a webcam and speakers to use this application.
To try it out:
1) Go to www.cartoonnetworkasia.com/minisite/generator_rex/ar/press/
2) Click GET YOUR NANITE SCAN HERE
3) Download the plug-in
4) Select your webcam options
5) Position your face in the window
Kids can then load the resulting videos on YouTube or Facebook to share with their friends.
“Generator Rex’s web activation has taken the traditional online experience and made it even more exciting. This is great news for kids, fans and collectors of the Cartoon Network property who can now get to see, interact with, and even record movies with, their favourite heroes,” said Philippe de Passorio from Total Immersion.
