Weekly Augmented Reality Linkfest

It’s time again for the weekly linkfest, a collection of augmented reality news stories that I didn’t find the time to blog about during the past week:

This week’s video comes to us from Nokia Research, showing their indoor navigation solution. Coming from Nokia Research, one of the first bodies to look into mobile AR, this should be considered as no more than a teaser. It’s very cool and alluring with its 30cm accuracy, and its “where I put my keys” functionality, but not likely to be adopted anytime soon. Five years from now, Apple/Google will probably come with inferior solution which will be hugely successful. You can read more about the technology on GSM Arena.

Have a great week!

  1. I dont think any hardware solution will be picked up – people wont want to put becons about their house. Image rec technology should beat that within a few years anyway – just need a local private dataset based solution.
    (you probably dont want to put your house images online…)

    I can see that bag finder being done soon though crudely – Androids new near field tech can be used effectively like a rfid, so someone could make fairly cheap stick on “bugs” for your stuff.
