More info here: http://bit.ly/gbk1b2 Duran Duran's December 2000 Pop Trash tour featured the world's first use of "augmented reality" technology in a live concert.

Duran Duran and Charmed Technology worked together to create advanced 2D/3D visual effects which allowed animated characters to appear live on stage with the band.

This collaboration began during a backstage meeting before a concert in Los Angeles. Jarrell Pair gave a simple demonstration of the AR toolkit to band members Nick

Rhodes, Simon Le Bon, and Warren Cuccurullo, and the idea of using AR in a live concert was born.

This video shows effect tests using the AR Toolkit prior to the concerts. Real time video effects tests are also shown.

These tests were the basis for vide effects shown during live performances "Hallucinating Elvis", "Girls on Film", "White Lines", "Late Bar", "Lava Lamp", "The

Reflex", and more.
