Kendal College today launched the first college prospectus of its kind, featuring augmented reality. Readers equipped with the right kind of smartphones can download the Kendal College app and see pages come to life, with students talking about their courses and why they chose Kendal College. The App, which uses technology developed by the company Autonomy, can be downloaded free from the Apple App store and, within the next few days, the Android Marketplace. By simply pointing the phone's camera at certain photographs in the prospectus the app will bring those photographs to life as a short movie. For best results the phone should be connected to a wifi network.

Layar ( http://www.layar.com ) is a "beautiful, fun augmented reality app that shows you the things you can't see". It's a way of using the camera on your smartphone to 'augment reality' and show points of interest around you, including real objects, such as cafes, bars and the like, and virtual objects, for example wikipedia entries or people using Twitter.
