Sean Kingston Augmented Reality - Karaoke with Virtual Sean!

The latest innovation in Augmented Reality is AR karaoke!

The Sean Kingston official site now has a section called 'Virtual Sean.' Users print off the AR code, hold it up to their webcam and then have Sean Kingston appear. Here he is on my desk:

There are various different dance moves that you can make Virtual Sean perform and if you have a microphone you can join him in a karaoke version of 'Fire Burning On The Dancefloor.'

There is then the opportunity to 'Record' your Augmented Reality Sean Kingston video, upload it to the Virtual Sean gallery and share it with your friends on Facebook, MySpace or Twitter. Virtual Sean users can also download their video recording to their own computer.

Augmented Reality is developing quickly and I think Virtual Sean is a great example of how interactive Augmented Reality can be. Virtual Sean is an interesting way of creating deeper engagement (and social currency) for fans and I'm sure others will follow.
