Augmented reality in Flash

New word of the day - Glyph Tracking.

Point you browser here to experience some pretty awesome technology at work, and it's all in Flash! You'll need a webcam, preferable a mic and of course, the latest version of Flash player. Just follow the instructions on the website.

If you are one of those unfortunate bunch who doesn't have a webcam, you'll just have to settle with the demo video below:

The application is basically a very interesting way to use glyph tracking technology (If you haven't realize, the square symbol is the glyph). You don't even have to print out the symbol; I simply took a picture of the glyph on my phone's camera and displayed it to the webcam.
