Stunning Examples of Augmented Business Cards

I’m a huge fan of business card designs and I’m always looking for new ideas. Recently I stumbled upon a new type of business cards which are using augmented reality in order to show the information. For those who don’t know what augmented reality (or simply AR) is, let’s see what wikipedia says:

Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality.

Below you can see some impressive examples of such designs which reminds me of Star Wars.
