    Happy Holidays to my fellow Tesla owners and those interested in these incredible machines (on my third). As a gift to you my company created an Augmented Reality app that has a special Easter egg. Currently available for iOS and soon for Android, you can find the app by searching for "kinetic vision - augmented reality experience" in the Apple App Store (it's free). You'll need a Tesla business card to activate the app so stop by your local showroom and pick one up. When you open the app and point the camera at the card back, you'll get quite a surprise!

    That is truly amazing!! I pulled my tesla card out of my wallet and suddenly had this awesome 3D pic on the card, which moves and changes the view as I turn the card. WOW! Thanks for the treat!!

    Most of my friends think I have a pretty cool car.....Now they are going to really flip out when I show them this!!

    The app just uses augmented reality to make a fully rendered Model X that appears to be attached to Tesla business cards (use the back as the target). It's hard to appreciate without seeing it in person.

    My post was taken off the Tesla forum by the moderator I guess. Not in the Holiday mood I guess!

    Your post is currently in the Tesla Model S forum. I don't understand what you mean by "taken off the Tesla forum".

    Can I change to a Model S matching my spec? Then I'd use it all the time!

    This is wonderful. I love that you can see inside. Here's an image of the back of a business card teslabizcard back.png for those of you who don't have a card handy.

    hmmm, I don't get a Model X, it displays a red Model 3, just like the Evannex card

    I just get the red model 3 with that image and with the Evannex image. I would like to see a screenshot of your Model S image

    very cool, I love the AR demos like this.

    when I tried it, at first I thought it was a red Model S, but I see the Model 3 style center screen inside the car upon closer inspection. (same whether using a real Tesla business card, or the image posted above by playoutside)
