    It doesn't matter what picture is on the card its mostly the color.
    I been playing with the cards on my computer and here are my results.
    The last card I cant find a color for Samus Aran.

    try them out if you want.

    Hmm... If you think of it than it could be true.
    The 3DS probably looks at the color instead of the Image itself.

    Hell.
    Makes sense, the cameras probably aren't high enough quality to pick out high-detail images.

    The Samus Aran card appears to use a shade of Lavender.
    Exact RGB Value
    Red: 126
    Green: 131
    Blue: 173

    I made a Samus Card with only the colour.

    This is rather interesting.

    I'm assuming the AR Games software has certain colours tied to certain characters. It shouldn't be too hard to add your own character if Nintendo wanted to add such an ability through a future update, then. All you would have to do is print an AR card of a certain colour and register a character to the AR card.

    Hmmm...

    I wonder if, maybe, games can come with their own colored cards. The game could tell the 3DS to temporarily treat it as it's own AR?

    This could be very interesting.

    Chroma key? Interesting. And pretty clever. It's much less hardware-intensive.

    Well, it's a software feature. Games could probably have cards of their own. You could program them to recognize colors, glyphs, letters, read QR codes...

    goober, please rehost the images on some other site, like imgur or something. This one displays huge porn ads.

    That's an interesting find.
    It makes sense.

    Are you saying you want to get banned for knowingly including links with porn?

    'Cause Veho's trying to stop you. You might want to listen to him.

    I wasn't the one who posted the links that supposedly have ads to porn, nor would I have ever known they had porn because I have Adblock Plus, and I would hope most others do too. Please learn to keep in context.

    Sorry if I directed it at the wrong person.

    The OP not having posted it on purpose doesn't mean it shouldn't be removed. Getting each person to install and use a browser plugin is not the answer.

    In a sense, it is actually, because it would never occur again on any other website. Though I have no idea why they used such a strange image host in the first place.

    How does getting Veho to install adblock make it so there's not links to porn in a forum thread?
    It doesn't.

    The root of the problem (the links themselves) needed to be fixed.
