Having a compass and camera built into smart phones opens up possibilities for augmented reality (AR). Programmers now know more than just location; by also knowing which direction the phone is facing, you can overlay objects on users’ view of the world. This video looks at AR development on the iPhone and Android platforms.
Derek Smith of SimpleGeo is a developer of their AR framework for the iPhone. He will step you through the challenges of providing a realtime overlay on the physical world. Martin Lechner of Mobilizy will discuss what they’ve learned in the four releases of their popular Wikitude on both platforms.
