Perhaps the next killer application. Why? Because it brings information into your camera-enable mobile phone wherever you point it to. Augmented Reality is becoming the next great main feature for phones and computers as well and it could change the way we get information in real-time and play games. It’s one of the technologies I’m really looking forward to. Read the following press release and watch the video.
Quizás la próxima aplicación asesina. ¿Por qué? Porque aporta información a sus cámaras de teléfono móvil a donde sea que ustedes lo dirijan. La realidad aumentada se está convirtiendo en la próxima gran característica principal para los teléfonos y los ordenadores y podría cambiar la manera en que recibimos información en tiempo real y jugamos juegos. Es una de las tecnologías que estoy esperando con interés. Lean el siguiente comunicado de prensa (en inglés) y vean el video.

Boulder, CO and Gurgaon, India (PRWEB) July 15, 2009 — GoWeb3D has been selected as one of 50 developers globally to deliver content on Layar, the revolutionary mobile augmented reality browser.

“GoWeb3D is ready to take orders to build augmented reality Layars for the mobile,” said Dave Elchoness, Managing Director of GoWeb3D in the US. “Imagine holding up your phone and seeing information about the world around you overlaid on the real life locations in the screen. For example, fast food chains, retailers, banks, realtors, and web 2.0 providers, just to name a few, can benefit from this amazing technology immediately and GoWeb3D can help.”
“Take the wealth of information on the web and overlay it on your mobile’s camera view. That’s Layar. Even better, you can click through to information about what you’re seeing,” remarked Rahul Dutta, Managing Director of GoWeb3D in India. “So say you’re looking for a great restaurant nearby. Hold up the phone, select the right Layar, read reviews, and walk towards the marker. Want to make dining reservations? Just tap on the marker. Or how about searching for real estate? Hold up the phone and see all the housing options around you!”
