Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin is my hands down favorite series of all time (and it’s not even complete yet). I’ve read the first four books about five times. That HBO has brought the books to life in a new series starting on Sunday is just heaven for a major fan boy like me. We didn’t even have HBO until a week ago.
Upon seeing the digital wall projection as a part of their marketing campaign, I gushed for joy. Mixing my favorite author with my favorite technology (though Rouli will argue with me that projection AR is not really augmented reality, but I’m not one to quibble when gushing) is like combining peanut butter and chocolate.
Of course, the AR enthusiast side of me finds the application of augmented reality in this circumstance a bit lacking. But I’m willing to let bygones by bygones, as long as the final product leaves me in the throes of fan boy ecstasy.
