Jonas Jäger has taken this whole augmented reality thing from oh-cute! status to holy-frack-that's-cool position. His business card will make the owner appear like a 3D hologram, displaying Twitter information in real time, plus all kinds of cool stuff.

Not surprisingly, according to Jonas, his inspiration for the Augmented Business Card was Star Wars:

While developing my concept it was very important to me that everybody should be able to create such a businesscard and present himself to the audience. Also i am a Star Wars fan and i liked the idea of displaying the person as a kind of "hologram" :)

DISCUSSION

I still don't understand augmented reality for business cards. Is there some type of camera or something I have to look through to see someones business card working. Are the cards not standard business cards Can anyone actually use this stuff? I mean i don't get the point. I can pull up after effects and fake the same thing if all it is happens to be a video.
