Augmented reality 'Angry Birds' is a wonder, but an unlikely release

Augmented reality Angry Birds looks like a perfect match of gameplay and technology, unfortunately the working game is the creation of an Iranian company that has no plans to try and license or release it.

Developer PenAR tells GamesBeat that they created the demo to show how augmented reality could affect the lives of people in the future, but that they have no plans to publish the game.

The demo uses a form of augmented reality called markerless AR that allows a developer to turn an image into a virtual reality playfield projected onto a real space, like a desk.
