Augmented Reality

April 10, 2008

It’s fun when you can see the pieces of the puzzle all falling together. I read this post about the emerging technolgy trend of Augmented Reality. The idea is that by combining image recognition with GPS user location information, your mobile phone can overlay information about what you’re looking at on your screen. Nifty.

Days later, Google announces a partnership with Trulia for navigating online real estate search using their Google Street View technology. An Augmented Reality without even needing to be there in the first place. Nifty.

Virtual Tourism through Google Earth is a rising trend as is Virtual Commuting. Pretty soon, we may not have to leave the house at all (except maybe to convert that neon glow tan into a real one)
