Mobile Augmented Reality Tagging
Metaio, a software development company focused on augmented reality, is developing a mobile application that allows users to drop or tag locations with personal messages, websites or even complex 3D models. With an interface similar to the augmented reality tweet viewer, the forthcoming application makes it possible to leave their virtual messages to be picked up by specific people or even create augmented graffiti on public space.
The possibilities of general commenting could integrate with Yelp to help see recent comments on nearby restaurants or alert friends of your whereabouts in an augmented reality view…with a dragon. It is not known when the application will be released, but it’s being developed to run on iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 platforms.
