For anyone who has been wanting to add a little something extra to a plate of sugar cookies, designer Mike Clare has the perfect ingredient: augmented reality decorations.
The two-toned dough pattern creates a small grid for coding the cookies for augmented reality. And while the dough is a basic recipe from The Joy of Cooking, the measurement and assembly are actually fairly complex.
The dough is cut into long strips of varying widths, and then stacked to form the square pattern. Once the block is fully assembled, squares can be sliced off and baked.
While the tan and brown color scheme might seem fairly bland, when placed in front of a web cam a colorful wheel appears on top of the cookie. Full recipe and instructions can be found at Clare’s website.
