Blippar, the image recognition and augmented reality app, has created a fitting tribute to David Bowie.
It is encouraging Bowie fans to download the Blippar app to create a selfie of themselves as Ziggy Stardust.
Users simply ‘blipp’ the iconic image of Bowie as Ziggy Stardust or the mural of Bowie in Brixton to add the distinctive Ziggy colour flash to their own picture.
Blippar created the tribute following the social media response from Bowie fans, many sharing pictures on social media of themselves painted with the flash.
The smart mobile phone app recognises images and objects and then displays content which is related. The Bowie tribute is intended to celebrate one of his finest moments and Blippar hopes that tens of thousands of fans will get behind the campaign and post their Ziggy images onto social media sites.
Head on over to the app store using your mobile device to download the Blippar app and make sure to post your picture to social media.
