Here's how it works:
The "statues" are actually 15-second video loops of Ovechkin, Wall or Pontius in different poses that can be accessed by downloading the BID's app and targeting one of the augmented reality markers. The markers are similar to quick response or QR codes that smartphones and tablets are able to scan.
So if you stand next to the marker, a friend or passerby can snap a photo of you giving Ovechkin a high five, for example.
Ovechkin was doing a photo shoot after Wednesday's morning skate and was tired, but was happy to do it for BID. Ovi said when his friends visit him, he takes them to Kettler Capitals Iceplex and around Ballston because he likes the area.
