TulipVision

tulip vision small

Virtual flowers never wilt.

Tulips are past their prime? Still wish you could enjoy the blooms now? There's an app for that.

Introducing TulipVision, the world's first augmented reality app for tulips.

Using an iPhone, iPad, or Google Glasses, TulipVision inserts digital tulips into your field of vision in the spaces occupied by empty flower beds.

This is just version 1.0 -- future versions are planned to include a number of TulipFest-related features.

Future directions:
+ Audio capability to swap out music from the festival band for a band you think is cooler
+ Facial recognition for ID'ing people caught peeing on your street
+ Elected official tint adjustment
+ Fried food booth mapping

Yes, this is a joke.

Whoever makes this real, will make DOLLARS. Tens of Dollars! :)

Fried food booth mapping app is NOT a joking matter, AOA. How dare you get my hopes up like that???

Those sound like really useful features to me -- not so much the flower part, but the last four, definitely. :)

I'd been wondering when augmented reality would find its killer app - this could very well be its coming-of-age moment.

You should have given me a call. I could have turned that around pretty quick.

... Also I would try a Tux shop. They do measurements for other tux shops all the time (for free), it's an industry courtesy. Waldorf Tux shop (Lark St) is an independently owned, "old school" tux shop--real sense of proper fitting---not just taking the "closest size" from the rack. ...
