Viral Boarder Video From KnifeShow Anticipates AR Gaming

Although we’re not quite sure what this video is for, FastCompany is going to use it as a way to augur the future–the 21st-century version of chicken entrails and all of that. It is, I think, a viral video from KnifeShow Inc., who mainly film rad dudes who do rad things with boards.

The film footage for Gnarcade was finished about a year ago, but the guys have spent so long doing the special effects on the three-minute film that it was only released two days ago.
