Real Teletubbies: AR T-Shirts Are Entertainment Anywhere

When was the last time your t-shirt did something to entertain you? The AR-Tees idea from Sebastian Merchel combines fashion and technology to produce a t-shirt concept that’s not only cool – it’s a futuristic entertainment system that you can take anywhere with you.

The shirts contain an augmented reality (AR) code that’s activated when a wearer stands in front of a webcam and directs the computer’s browser to Merchel’s website. The AR code comes to life and plays movies, cartoons or other entertainment right on the wearer’s belly. An entertaining midsection will only cost you about 28 Euros, though you will need a computer and webcam to fully enjoy it.
