augmented reality

1 09 2009

Okay, so I’ve been checking out a few augmented reality apps that are being developed and it is just absolutely ridiculous how far we’ve come in terms of technology. I’m not even gonna lie…this stuff seriously blows my mind! The things that people come up with these days is amazing. Some of the stuff is actually really helpful like my personal fave, the Nearest Tube app that directs you to the nearest subway station. But as always, there are two sides to the coin and so I bring to your attention the above video, TAT’s Augmented ID. The concept that someone can just use their iPhone and find all of my online profiles is too creepy. I’m all for information at your fingertips but uh, don’t you think this is a little much?
