Weekly Linkfest

Oh, there's just too much to write about this week.
In the mobile AR front:
  • Nokia's researcher Kari Pulli gave a talk last week at the SDForum about Nokia's take on mobile augmented reality (slides). In a nutshell, it should be based on image recognition and accessed using HMD. And here are some more details from the Nokia World event that took part this week.
  • buUuk is an AR browser-like application for Asia, Australia and the middle east. [via DMFO]
  • Discover Anywhere Mobile is a Canadian company set to provide AR application to help you ride North American public transit.
  • While Presselite which brought us Metro Paris has an application for Tokyo that looks much the same.
  • And GeoVector, one of the veteran players in the AR industry is going to release an application for Android named WorldSurfer. They accidently published a post about it in their corporate blog (dated for next week) and then deleted it. Luckily, there's Google Cache.
In the world of novelty AR advertisement:
  • You can check whether the new Samsung LED television fits your living room (which is actually a bit handy).
  • ABC promotes their new thriller FlashForward.
  • I'm not into baseball, so there's something about a Rawlings golden glove over here.
  • You can't escape augmented reality even if you live in Vietnam, thanks to Coca Cola.
In other news:
This week's video comes from Vodafone, which had a lightly augmented version of the game of tag in the Netherlands for the launch of the HTC magic. More details can be found here.

Have a nice week!
