I am so jealous and so want this. It's obviously a first draft and needs work but this is too cool.
Watching this makes me realise we need a AR standardised service like QR codes, eg all 'applications' display data calls in the same format etc.
Obviously the data will be pulled down from a web services domain but the url and format for the information on that domain should be standardised - I'm suggesting we go for the following format
Once an application sees a suffix /AR/ it knows to make a web call to whatever augmented reality application is installed on the computer/phone.
The it knows to make a web call to the particular domain to pull down the information.
All thats missing is working out the 'standardised' way to convert whatever image/shape/design into the URL for the web call.
We can use the 2 dimensional shape displayed on this card (and others) or we can user a 2D codes style service, kind of like QR codes but with a z axis function. My suggestion is to implement MoseyCode for this functionality as the creator has open sourced the license but thats going to be a matter for common consensus.
Either way this is something we are going to need if we are going to start flipping business cards out to people and not expect them to download 50 different AR applications.
(hat tip to David Polichock at BEL for finding this first)
Interesting to see they are offering applications for multiple Mobile OS's and with the China Mobile O phone coming out in 2 months i expect that a lof of the apps will be heavily weighted towards Android (O phone is a HTC android with custom os).
China Mobile are keeping 50% of all app sales as commission but with 500,000,000 end customers....they get to call the shots (big enough that they still haven't given into Steve Jobs at Apple - people think China Mobile is crazy that they still haven't come to terms on the rev model splits with Apple so have kept the iphone out of China, lol crazy like a fox i think, with the Ophone now just months away China Mobile doesn't care if one of the smaller carriers pick it up now).
Considering i still own the domains www.MobileAppStore.com + .net + .org + .mobi it's an interesting space to keep watching.
P.S. Howard Greenstein commented on "49 states then i point out 3 missing", for the sake of brevity i said 49 states when i should have said 49 states, districts and territories....thank you Howard.
Though having said that i'm curious how Google Analytics treats American Samoa, Guam, Marianas, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and what is missing in the GA list.
Will have to go do more research.
