The Sampler: Converse Drops Augmented Reality App For iPhone

Converse debuts a new iPhone application entitled The Sampler and it comes with some interesting new features. It operates on the simple premise that people like to try things out before buying them.

With it, you can sample any Converse shoe from its catalog, simply by pointing your iPhone at your right leg. Using Augmented Reality to place the shoe you’ve chosen over your foot, it appears just as if you were wearing it. If you like what you see, you can share it on Facebook for your friend’s opinions, or purchase the shoes directly from Converse’s mobile web site.

The Sampler by Converse app is available for free in the app store…
