Whenever you bring up Ridley Scott’s classic film ‘Alien,’ one scene tends to spring to mind immediately. Surely you remember it: the crew of the Nostromo gathers around the table for breakfast following a harrowing stopover on LV-421,only for Kane to have a baby alien burst out of his chest. It’s one of the most famous movie scenes of all time…and a new Android app will let you re-enact it yourself.

Whatever you choose, the app will scan the image and use some pretty nifty augmented reality technology to complete the scene. Here’s a video fron Fingerfunk, the company behind the app:
