IBM Z AR (Augmented Reality) Experience - where did you put a Z?

    Hello, fellow fans of Z!

    Last week, alongside Think 2021, a new site was launched to show off IBM Z hardware, the IBM Z AR Experience: https://z-ar-experience.com/

    AR or Augmented Reality allows you to use a device to add things to your environment virtually through a camera. This became wildly popular a few years ago with Pokemon Go, where players carried around their phones for weeks to "catch" Pokemon all over the world.

    This technology has a lot of incredibly practical uses, but this AR experience is definitely on the fun side as well. In addition to being able to click around to play with the hardware when you open the website on your computer, if you load it up on your smart phone you can click on "View in AR" and it'll use your camera to place a z15 wherever your camera is pointed!

    I've made lots of jokes about putting an IBM Z in my garage, so that's the first place I "put" one!
    So where did you put a Z? In your living room? Downtown? The grocery store? I'd love to see it!
