Weekly Augmented Reality Mobile Applications Galore

Yes, there are so many of new augmented reality browsers each week, they deserve their own post, instead of clogging the weekly linkfest. Here are the browsers that made news this week, in no particular order (well, ok, those they I liked are on top):

Air Painter
Previously we featured geoPaste, an Android application that lets you draw on real-life. Air Painter is a Japanese Android application with a similar premise, though its user interface seems a bit more refined, as can be seen in the video below (don’t worry about the German, you don’t have to understand it to see how cool this application is). More information on AirPainter’s hompeage, and here’s another video.

LooKATOR
LooKATOR shows you WiFi signals floating on top of Android’s video feed. Follow the spots to get stronger signal/stronger dose of radiation. Some details here, no official homepage that I can find (via DMFO)

WhereMark
An augmented reality browser with a slick interface for the iPhone, that features results from Google’s local search. Like most browsers these days, it also lets users add their own content. Some more information, in WhereMark’s homepage.

uTourX
uTourX is an iPhone browser like application, for the niche market of American students touring colleges before they sign in. Nothing much special, except the over-acting in the following video. Homepage

Vicrea’s Browser
I don’t have any better name for it. Vicrea is a Dutch corporation, and the next video shows a concept augmented reality application they are developing. They should really just ask Layar to give them a branded version. More information, here, in Dutch. (via DMFO)

  1. When I asked 6 weeks ago: How many AR Apps will we have by the end of 2009? Take your bet! (http://tinyurl.com/yl9c3oa)

    We got these answers:

    Thomas Carpenter: By the end of this year probably 50 apps.

    Darkflame: I predict by the end of this year, that list will get too big to be sensibly be on one page.

    Seem like the “end of year” came sooner than expected…

  2. […] If you are wondering how come there’s not one link pointing to a new augmented reality browser, they had their day yesterday. […]

  3. Well, clearly we are all overly clairvoyant.
