The Washington Post is here to make carving your Thanksgiving turkey easy this holiday season.
There’s no feast quite like a Thanksgiving dinner. Whether it be the turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, or a variety of other delicious foods, many of us will no doubt find ourselves trapped in a paralyzing food coma come Black Friday.
It can be an extremely daunting process preparing a Thanksgiving meal, especially the turkey. If you’re anything like me, you’re totally unqualified when it comes to properly carving a Thanksgiving turkey. Thankfully, the fine folks over at The Washington Post are here to save our sorry butts with a 3D-model bird complete with animated instructions on where to cut, separate, and debone your own turkey.
The website offers a variety of written instructions and accompanying animations to reference, though if you’re looking for more of a hands-on instruction, you’ll want to check out the full augmented experience.
By logging on to the same webpage on an up-to-date iOS device, users can place an augmented Simply Seasoned Turkey directly on their kitchen counter and follow along from any angle as each carving step is animated and explained in real-time on the 3D model.
