Russia Issues New Augmented Reality Banknotes

Posted by

2000-rublesRussia has issued two new 200 and 2000 rubles banknotes featuring a new “augmented reality” feature. The banknotes can have 3D moving images activated by using a smart phone with the pertinent app. Images such as bridges, printed on the paper, then become 3D animations with vehicles being seen travelling along the bridge, ships passing underneath, and seagulls flying. The 2000 ruble banknote also depicts the planets circling around a 3D image of Russia’s Vostochny Cosmodrome.

A short clip demonstrating the feature can be seen here:
