It’s time again for the weekly linkfest. Let’s see what else happened this week in the world of augmented reality:
- Tish Shute interviews Ken Inoue, CFO of Tonchidot, on Sekai Camera and AR commons, the organization Tonchidot helped to create.
- New Scientist: “Augmented reality gets off to a wobbly start“. If I may quote Tim Sears:
- VentureBeat: “Which augmented reality startups will dominate? We rank them“. Pity there’s no similar ranking for tech news sites.
- Gary Hayes writes about “16 Top Augmented Reality Business Models“, an article that went viral in the ARSphere.
In the realm of mobile browsers:
- SREngine has a new video out showing its slick user interface.
- Hong Kong’s Leisure Guide – yet another AR browser (YAARB™)
- Metaio announces the coming release of Junaio, but doesn’t give much information about what Junaio really is.
And in other news:
- Total Immersion now enters the world of soccer trading cards, at least in Italy.
- You can get pregnant without the morning sickness via the wonders of Flash based AR.
- The Virtec project is a thesis project using AR to teach about Aztec culture by means of a book and a head mounted display.
This week’s video revisits one of this blog’s reoccurring themes, the Transformers (previously here and here). This application comes with the Transformers coming DVD, or as this trailer puts it “Prepare for Augmented Reality! An exclusive 3D Holographic Experience!”:
Have a nice week!
