The event opens to developers and the public as a preview on the 19th of July, but it fully opens up on Thursday 20th and runs until Sunday 23rd.

Sega is presenting an AR Sonic experience and a special concert with the awesome Shota Nakama on Thursday evening, and dome takeover on Friday!

Sonic Augmented Reality Tops Out Now

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG TEE. Zappar – Augmented Reality based Entertainment!

It’s not unusual for new Sonic clothing to get released, but this one is a little different, it has a party trick to it. Chances are you’ve heard of Augmented Reality, that’s the thing where you hold up your camera phone or some other device with a camera on it to a picture/image and then the said image comes to life?

Well when you hold look at this shirt through a phone or device that runs the ‘Zappar’ application, Sonic jumps out of the shirt design and appears to run around the person wearing it.

This is an item exclusive to Asda in the UK and only costs £6. However, it’s children sizes only. Also before you ask. Nope, there is no way this will be available at other stores, reason being is that the designer is ‘George’ who is Asda’s own clothing brand.
