Layar – Augmented Reality for Android and iPhone 3GS

Jesse and I are on the road covering the Game Education Summit, but I wanted to take a quick minute and post this video preview of Layar, an Augmented Reality browser for Android phones and the new iPhone, developed by SPRXmobile. Layar uses GPS, compass (available with Android and soon to be available with the iPhone 3GS) and camera functionality to get a user’s location and then overlay information in real time. There are a number of projects that have been working with AR for awhile now, Layar will be one of the first, if not the first, to get an app out there in general release.
