The Meccano FX App, available on the iTunes Store, lets users add Meccano construction sets with augmented reality technology into their own videos to produce sci-fi scenes straight out of the movies, with themselves as the star. Six different scenarios are available.
Marking the launch of the App is a sci-fi movie short on YouTube. ‘Invasion has begun’ shows Meccano models massing in Earth’s orbit as they prepare to invade. Set on the streets of Paris, the movie features Parisian landmarks as Meccano models swarm over the city.
