So for now I guess everyone should believe Location based Augmented reality should be the next big thing.
A lot of amazing phone applications has been released, and we are mesmerized by the demo as well.
However, let’s be realistic, demo is demo, to apply the demo to real life is another thing, I truly appreciate we have someone to tell us to calm down a bit on the technology, having said that, this is absolutely the most exciting tech in the next 5 years.
Please read the 2 articles from Zugara, is very interesting & informative:
and to make this entry looks better, i have to embed 1-2 AR app here for your eye candy
GPS + Compass on mobile, creating an augmented reality
MUST be the next thing
maybe in 5 years, this will be another big step from web 1.0 to web 2.0
this is not web 3.0, since you cannot separate the real & the virtual world anymore
the world is the web is the world
“The G1 phone has a built-in compass, which means that it can not only determine where users are, but also which direction they’re facing. Which gets interesting when combined with the phone’s camera, which is what the Dutch bank’s new tool does.”
this is what the ING bank doing on G-phone, when you take a photo, they will indicate where’s the nearest ATM on your photo, isn’t it cool?
To apply it on a travel guide, this could be a highly interactive travel book.
I think this feature is cool!
