Remember the Glyph tracking technology that we showed you a few months ago. Well have a look at what BMW is now doing! BMW will allow you to design your car in front of your computer which isn’t anything special but now you can also virtually spin it around in a 3D environment and look at it from every angle just by moving a printed sheet of paper around. All you need is a webcam and a computer.

"The new BMW Z4 in 3D.
Create your own Expression of Joy.
With our state-of-the-art 3D technology you can get behind the controls of the new BMW Z4 without even leaving your seat. Getting started couldn’t be easier. Just follow the simple instructions below.

2. Print out the Z4 symbol on page 1.
3. Turn on your webcam.
