Augmented Reality Plugin for Google SketchUp
Inglobe Technologies released version 2 of their Augmented Reality Plugin for Google SketchUp with a lot of interesting features. The new version allows you to create Augmented Reality movies by using multiple targets at once. Here’s a video that shows off the new features in ARmedia Plugin 2.0.
And here’s an illustration that shows the setup:

To get started, download their “Quick Start Guide” (PDF format for Windows or Mac), you’ll find the relevant links about halfway down the plugin’s webpage. Follow Steps 2 and 3 to download and install the software; the free Personal Learning Edition will let you see how everything works without spending any money. After that, achieve instant gratification (my favorite kind) by skipping ahead to Step 6 in the Quick Start Guide: “Creating your first Augmented Reality Scene”.
