GestureTek create augmented reality experience for Disney's Perry the Platy bus tour

GestureTek created an augmented reality experience for the Disney show Phineas and Ferb's Perry the Platy-bus on tour.

It created a custom augmented reality experience that works via a video camera connected to a GestureTek computer system.

Disney fans could join the mission to bring Perry back home via augmented reality, and virtually get in the action with Phineas, Ferb and other characters.

The bus toured around America and allowed fans to meet the cast and play lots of games about the show as well as interact with the shows animated characters virtually.

The tour celebrated the animated series and the movie Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension.
