Using photos of objects we have created an experience that combines the physical and virtual world. In this world you can pick up objects and move them while still having a physical object to touch. Picking up a cup in the real world picks up a cup in the digital world. The photos are changeable allowing users to make every day objects become much more than their real world counterparts. Think of tracking your phone in the digital environment and it becomes a dragon when thrown on a table. Board games become much more with increase interactivity. UI in the palm of your hand also allows for changing the objects on the fly. This could also be used for police and military engagements where worlds can be built quickly and cheaply but have a physical side to digital environments.
