In the last 12 months the outlook for Augmented Reality as a mass technology has changed dramatically.
In August of 2011 metaio CTO Peter Meier introduced the first-ever optical recognition and tracking of a real world object on a consumer mobile device, as well as a dedicated technological and professional roadmap to make accessing digital information in the real world a more natural experience.
metaio later integrated 3-D object tracking into the free version of the metaio Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) and released it to the mobile developer community to enable and empower the next generation of mobile AR apps.
This year you will witness the next steps that will change the Augmented City from an idealized model into the real digital environment around you. metaio will show how a city, like Munich, can become truly augmented bringing digital information around you in an intuitive and natural interface. The real Augmented City will be created using more powerful but easier-to-use tools like junaio, or drag and drop AR creation tools such as the metaio Creator, which enables everyone to create Augmented Reality experiences with little or no technical knowledge.
Enter the future of the Augmented City at insideAR 2012 and learn how the digital world becomes natural experience.
