Chancellor Merkel 'pop-up' Campaigns On Streets Ahead Of Vote

Wochit 0:35 mins

Angela Merkel's election campaign team launched a 'Merkel app' for smartphones that appears to make outdoor billboard posters of the German chancellor speak directly to voters. Use of the cutting-edge technology appeared to be a first for German politics, which is gearing up for an election on September 22 whose final outcome is still hard to call. The app automatically recognizes Merkel's face through a camera when held up to a campaign poster with her image and begins playing a video featuring her as a pop-up talking head.
