GDC 2013 - It can't be a Game Developers Conference this year without some cool augmented reality demos now, can it? Well, metaio was at GDC 2013 showing off their quite capable augmented reality technology.

Trace was treated by ex-TweakTown staff member Trak Lord, who showed off some very cool augmented reality Lego demo. As the video above shows, a Nexus 10 is used for the demo, rendering the Lego figure and his four-wheeler in real-time. Trace notes the low polygon count, but Trak says that high-quality models are definitely capable, but it would take a while for consumers to download from the Internet. Trak also noted that this is meant to be a light, accessible experience.

metaio states that they've preloaded models of entire cars or air conditioners using their augmented reality technology.
