Like many of us here in the office, you are waiting impatiently to get a chance to walk around the Slingshot. Only a select few members of the media, attendees of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and dealers in attendance of the Polaris Dealer's Show have been lucky enough to check out this awesome new machine in person.

We have found that the photos do not do it justice. The presence of the Slingshot is unlike any other machine on the road. It is low, wide, and sleek. Comparisons to other 3-wheeled vehicles have been drawn, but I fail to see the comparison other than the number of physical wheels and tires.

Polaris felt this exact same way. When you have a revolutionary vehicle, it calls for some revolutionary technology to show it off! Enter the Polaris Slingshot 360 App for iOS, and Android. Through the use of Augmented Reality, you will be able to see the Slingshot in a way that has never been seen before. You will be able to use a "Trigger Image" to anchor your Slingshot to your desk, table, work bench, or whatever setting you would like to see your Slingshot experience. The video below gives you a basic tutorial of the best use for Augmented Reality that we have seen yet!

PI is pulling out all of the stops to whet the appetites of the motoring public. I, for one, am ready to see these machines on the road! I have been lucky enough to drive one, and let me tell you that it is as amazing as the technology that is showcasing it!

Neat, now if I could drive it around on the floor in my house that would be even cooler, or open the hood and that kind of stuff. I like it.

just downloaded and played with this.

I'll second the "open the hood" option, and would like to select color and option level :)

Can I just say how pleased I am at Polaris (my favorite powersports brand) combining a cool vehicle with nerdy tech? I love this app and demonstrate it wherever I can!

Oh, yeah. I have a pretty huge stack of those hard plastic AR cards Polaris hands out if anyone wants them. I could probably mail them somehow...

To anyone who requested a SS360 card:

I've dropped them in the mail, and they will probably go out tomorrow. Sorry, I got caught up doing some extra work from the three-day weekend, otherwise I would have sent them out with today's mail.

Kip, any chance you could send me a couple?

Man, I'm sorry, I made an error on your address somehow and your card came back to me. I'll add one more card in for the trouble, and it should be on its way to you soon.

Just found this APP thing! This is awesome! Gimmicky but fun to play with for like 2 minutes. LOL Better on a tablet than a phone. Just download the app as listed in the first post and have the trigger image emailed to yourself and print it out. It doesn't have to be a color print out.

I took a picture of an SS on my desk. :)

Also, @WI_Hedgehog "we" have a YouTube channel? Hasn't been touched in over a year. Just pondering what we could do with it. ;)
