We've seen some really cool things come along with augmented reality technology. In fact, just a few days ago the Chestburster app made its way to Android, allowing users to finally see what it's like to watch a baby alien tear its way out of things (up to and including actual chests). Now, however, we see augmented reality used in a much more practical manner with a new app called HandsonAR.

With the recent phablet movement and announcement of Verizon's LG Intuition and Samsung's Galaxy Note II, many people are curious about super-sized phones. The main question is: how much larger than my existing phone is it? To answer that question quickly and easily, you can now use handsonAR. Check it out:

The app is currently able to show a handful of devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S III
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Nexus 7
  • LG Optimus VU/Intuition
  • Nokia Lumia 920

Using it is super simple: just print this marker, fire up the app, select the device you want to see, and hit "AR View." From there, point your device's camera at the printed marker, and poof! - the device will magically appear in full 3D glory. Awesome.
