I’ve just finished my note about Augmented Reality and cell phones, concerning YDreams, and it seems that somebody else just done it:
Viennese computer scientist Daniel Wagner has figured out a way to show
a virtual character on an i-mate SP5 cellphone, and when you move
around with the cellphone, it appears that you’re floating around this
virtual character in 3D. Other people with cellphones can also see this
character from their points of view. Augmented reality, indeed.
That was typically one of the potential usage of augmented reality. Next step is to get rid of this 2D marker, and to magically put some virtual charcacters in your hand….
