Following on from last week’s post on augmented reality, watching this video made me realise that AR needs to work differently if it’s going to be realy useful. It’s not enough to be direction and distance aware. The app somehow needs to be able to see the world as humans see it.
I’ve been having my first foray into the world of augmented reality via the iPhone. Although the current generation of apps looks promising I feel we’re still a away from making AR really exciting, accessible and cool.
In order to regain a bit of impetus behind my blogging I’m shamelessly nicking the idea of a few other bloggers and producing a weekly digest of some of the things I’ve been working on, discovered or reflected on over the course of the week.
This is the first one.
