Most of us have a fairly good grip on reality, and no-one with a penchant for nineties sci-fi films could be unaware of virtual reality: a totally computer-simulated environment.
And then there’s augmented reality, which aims to combine the two.
iQ might still be a rare sight on British roads, but there’s little doubt it exists. We’ve also spotted it in the Japanese virtual world meet-me, which just left augmented reality.
Toyota’s created a 3D interactive version of iQ for the Toyota iQ augmented reality. If you’ve got a webcam, you can download the application and use it to explore the car.
Even if you haven’t, it’s worth taking a look at the demo.
