If you have a printer and a webcam, head over to http://ge.ecomagination.com/smartgrid/#/augmented_reality and play around with this 3d toy.

Basically, you hold up a piece of paper with a special pattern on it in from of your webcam, and then you'll see a 3d animation that appears to be attached to the paper.

Very cool.
