The Green Hornet Gets Augmented

by Dan Koelsch

We haven’t had a lot of augmented reality news lately, which has led me to believe the fad, which looks to have reached its movie advertising peak last year, has started to fade. Fortunely it’s not completely dead, as Columbia Pictures’ The Green Hornet lets you test out the Black Beauty in real time. Details after the break.

The Green Hornet is about a rich playboy (Seth Rogan) who decides to add meaning to his life after his dad dies by becoming a superhero. He has the help of his martial arts expert driver Kato (Jay Chou) and a high-tech 1966 Imperial named “Black Beauty”.


At ExperienceBlackBeauty.com (which sounds like a porn site, but trust me, its not), you can try out some of cool weapons the car has. By holding on to certain “buttons” on your paper marker, Black Beauty will either fire missiles, or use the flamethrower or gatling gun. It also give you the option to watch the trailer, which we have below.





Try it out for yourself, and let us know what you think. The Green Hornet, directed by Michel Gondry and also starring Christoph Waltz, opens January 14th, 2011.
