Augmented Reality Business Card - your portfolio inside your card!


Concept:
Have your business card present extra information about yourself to complete the picture about who you are and what can you do.

Use-cases:
Real-time portfolio: show-off with your previous work.
- Show yourself and your agenda: record yourself on video or sound.
- Stay connected: link to your websites and social networks.

What can you do with your card:
- Add many types of media: video, photo, sound, Swf animation. In the future you could add 3D objects.
- Define the way your users will interact with the card. See all available options below.
- Each media can have one web link.
- Spread and embed the application wherever you want.

See it in action:
1. Print one or more of my business cards. each presents different example of design and interaction.
2. Scroll down to the application, and allow it to access your camera. Connect a webcam if you don't have any.
4. Hold one card in front of the camera.
5. Watch and interact with the content: videos, images, SWFs and sounds.

if you wish to have a card of your own- please contact me on:

User interaction types:
1. Static Cube: Cube sits on top of the marker and glued to it. Each face of the cube can have content (image or video). When user rotates the marker they could see the 5 faces of the cube.
2. Spinning Cube (by marker): Cube sits on top of the marker. Each face of the cube can have content (image or video). When user moves the marker, the cube rotates by itself and the user could see all 6 faces of the cube.
3. Spinning Cube (by mouse): Cube sits on top of the marker. Each face of the cube can have content (image or video). When user moves the mouse, the cube rotates by itself and the user could see all 6 faces of the cube.
4. Rotating Cube: Cube sits on top of the marker and automatically rotates, allowing the user to see all 6 faces of the cube.
5. One Plane Portfolio: Each content sits on top of the marker separately and glued to it. When the user moves the marker to the sides of the screen, the content is replaced. Can present any number of images and videos.

A business card is a physical connection and bond between you and your clients or costumer.So i think business cards have been used by business owners for many years.

I totally agree. This project only enhances the physical business card with extra virtual content.
I have just finished uploading the working application and you could see that it does not mean to replace the physical card, rather then enrich it.
