I’ve been following Sprxmobile, the people behind the upcoming launch of ‘Layar’ for quite some time. Indeed the last I published was back in early January (read post).
Well it’s now all about Layar. That’s the name of their absolutely tip-top-shit-hot-Bladerunner-style-Terminator-style mobile augmented reality browser.
It’s a mouthful. But it’s amazing.
And it’s a really good reason to get hold of an HTC Magic:
What’s it do? Well, the best way to experience it is to check out their video demonstration:
Isn’t that amazing? As you move your handset around you’re being shown pertinent and relevant information on the device. Simply brilliant. I particularly like the idea of browsing the cost of a house I’m interested in buying!
Layers — the type of information shown on top of the display — are completely configurable. Indeed it won’t be long, I don’t think, until an enterprising property rental/sales company jumps Layar and gets their data integrated. Or McDonalds. Or Starbucks… and so on.
Find more information here: http://layar.eu/.
It’ll be available to download shortly — I’ll post a note about that soon.
