Your T-Shirt Is Alive: Augmented Reality Embedded Into Clothes

strum game fun marketing

Augmented reality is coming to a to a t-shirt near you…and very soon! Dartmouth, Nova Scotia-based Ad-Dispatch has developed an app that works similar to QR Codes, but picks up on embedded images in the design of your t-shirt. Scanning the special shirts with your mobile phone, for example, will bring to life the character associated with the brand. The company already has working relationships with several major US department stores (WalMart, JC Penney, Sears, Macy’s), so it’s not a stretch to visualize them working on Disney licensed products.

I can see it now. The whole fam damily is walking through Walt Disney World and my six-year-old suddenly grabs my cell phone and starts scanning the Tinkerbell t-shirts. Next thing you know, Tink is flitting her way right into said daughter’s heart and Mom and Pop shell out the dough for the darned shirt. But I digress…

President and CEO, Nathan Kroll (@addispatchnate) says there are 39 “experiences” and over 50 products waiting to be launched. At a recent media conference, they demonstrated the app by scanning a guitar-themed t-shirt and bringing up a virtual guitar on the phone. You can check out their YouTube Channel to see demos of all their great AR stuff.
