In the mobile AR front:
- Kooaba is an iPhone application that much like Snaptell (or Nokia's "Point and Find") lets you take a picture of a product and get information about it. Now they venture into the realm of AR browsers, but since they fail to show their image-based browser working on a real iPhone, I'll remain skeptic for now.
- Cyborg is an AR application that helps you find the cheapest gas station around. Yes, they could do that with a simple map, but that's like having a web 2.0 site without rounded corners.
- And if you live in Hong Kong, forget about gas prices, just use this application to find the nearest train.
- Sony lets you put a virtual animal mask on your head (if you have a Playstation, of course). That's quite similar to this application from Ubisoft that do the same with MSN messenger.
- First augmented book in Britain is about dragons, and powered by Total Immersion tech.
- Augmented reality wiki - what a fab idea! (especially considering the dire state of the "augmented reality" article at Wikipedia).
- AdoptMe.com offers you to adopt augmented pets. Haven't tested it, but seems quite shabby (it's like the site's design was taken from 1996).
Have a nice week!
