Trident and animations in augmented reality

What is it using?

I’m not going to take credit for this demo. The vast majority of work is being done by JMF, NYArToolkit and Java3D (and they’re quite painful to set up, by the way). The actual visuals are amateur at best and can look much better. But at least it shows where you can take your Java today :)
