Augmented Reality Cookies: Link to video and website for QKies, a new twist that blends cookies and AR.

QKies is a cooperative project of Juchem Gruppe, a German food trade company, and DFKI, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence.  QKies is a special twist on baking cookies that involves the use of QR codes that people can share as they share cookies with others:

"Give your friends and acquaintances cookies, they send you directly to a specific site. For example, this can be a video on YouTube, a photo from Flickr or your own website."

Here is an introductory video of the product, in German:

Below is a video created by Johannes Schoening of his augmented reality Christmas Cookies.  The idea for the concept, as you see, started out as a joke, after his wife asked him to bake some cookies for the holidays. 

Johannes worked as a senior researcher at DFKI and is now following his new motto,  "Baked to the Future" at "people interactive" (http://www.people-interactive.de/) in Cologne.
