Doctor Who Fan Builds Augmented Reality TARDIS That Really is Bigger on the Inside

One of the fun things about Doctor Who that I think most people find really cool is the fact that the TARDIS is bigger on the inside than the outside.  It seems like such a crazy, unintuitive idea that you can’t help but be interested in it and constantly wonder how something like that is physically possible?  Well, thanks to a little help from augmented reality technology, one Doctor Who fan built a cool little TARDIS toy that really does appear to be much bigger on the inside!

Whovian Greg Kumparak created this awesome little TARDIS not only looks cool but has a beacon that lights up and doors that open!  While opening doors is already one step beyond most fan made TARDIS’ I have seen, this one has some sort of clever zebra print on the inside that when looked through with an augmented reality app on your phone will transform into the inside of the TARDIS and appear to be much bigger on the inside than the outside.  How cool is that?!

You can see more pictures of the constructions and a nice little writeup on it over on Greg’s blog but what I’m sure you really want to see is the video below.
