Make your food look better with augmented reality cookies

The fine folks over at Telart have been baking up some special cookies. Instead of worrying about making their cookies look appetizing, they instead focused their efforts on making them look like a fiducial, and then used an augmented reality program to put their logo on top of the cookie.

This is pretty cool by itself, but think of the potential for the technology. Don’t like eating your veggies? Pop in the appropriate models, and appease your mom while nomming on delicious cookies. Want to build an obsolescence-proof kids cereal? Make fiducial-o’s instead, and let your customers download the latest software when they want to eat them. Forget to make a cake for your significant other’s birthday? No issue, just drop down a loaf of bread with one of these markers baked in, and voila! The possibilities are endless.

Check out their instructions to try this at home!

    1. Yeah, I wanted to include it but they have disallowed embedding of their video. I’ll put up a more explicit link, though.
