Crafts x Royal Wilton x AR

I’m not a big fan of AR and its sometimes clumsy relationship with content – too often it feels as if the technology overwhelms the message. But this combination of delicate Royal Wilton crockery design and computer animated action is a more intriguing fit than most. I like the mix of very traditional and very modern.

The cover of the March/April issue of Crafts magazine features the design, which triggers the animation when viewed via the free app on an iPhone or iPad (video after the jump).
