mobile focus and AR zombies at a great metaio fair

Yesterday metaio held their annual fair to show us their new developments and technologies live and interactively with the biggest fair they set up so far. 200 registered AR enthusiasts stormed their bright new offices to be overwhelmed with marker symbols, markeless tracking, applications, concepts and hardware presentations. I consider the day at their headquarters a big success and a […]

Flyar to augment your twittering

Another short update on a fun application from ydreams comes to your desktop for free: look at your screen as if it where a mirror (virtual mirror) and see floating birds chirping your twitter feeds out.

AR Browser’s conquest

Just a short comment today. Rouli made a listing of current AR Browsers and I thought I just add one more, that sounds promising: www.gamaray.com.
