Waiting out an unfortunately lengthy shipment, Stockholm area maker Johan von Konow decided to build for his son a working set of augmented reality game pieces for the Cars 2 AppMATes game on his iPad. To achieve a faithful representation of the characters in the game, Johan modified a couple of PEZ dispenser tops approximately the same size and shape as the original game pieces. For his makeshift stand-ins to actually work in the game, Johan then glued surplus conductive foam to some ESD film and attached it to the cars. Making contact with the ESD film activates the capacitive identity of the piece within the game allowing for hours of maximum augmented reality playtime. [Thanks, Johan!]
