5 utilisations de la réalité augmentée qui peuvent améliorer nos vies Passé l'effet "whaou" lors de la découverte, que peut-on faire de réellement utile grâce à la réalité augmentée ? 5 exemples concrets : Cartographie superposée au monde réel Peut-être l'application la plus concrète à l'heure actuelle, rendue populaire par des applications comme Layar sur nos smartphones. Elle consiste à faire apparaître des objets virtuels géolocalisés sur l'image réelle que l'on a devant les yeux, pour apporter des informations (description de lieux via la fiche Wikipedia...), afficher la localisation d'éléments particuliers (amis Facebook via Places, contacts Twitter, monuments, magasins...), voir même afficher des données de navigation GPS. La vidéo ci-dessous montre une utilisation particulièrement intéressante : tu es dans les couloirs de métro, perdu et en retard : inutile de rechercher sur les murs les panneaux d'indications, ton smartphone t'indique le chemin à suivre : Plusieurs entreprises semblent se pencher sérieusement sur la question.

Creation Tools: Series Wrap-Up By Chris Cameron on December 20th 2010 Over the last several weeks here on the Layar blog, we profiled three services for generating Layar content, which we call Layar Creation Tools (or LCTs). While other services exist or are in development, we chose to focus on these three – Skaloop , Hoppala Augmentation and BuildAR – because of their availability and accessibility to users of all skill levels. Each LCT is unique and has its benefits to different users, so we decided to make a matrix that shows which features are available on each LCT. As you can see, Hoppala includes most of the features listed, such as layer actions, 3D objects and custom interaction widgets. If you are interested at all in creating Augmented Reality content on Layar, have a look at the matrix below and see which LCT might be right for you. As for the services that are in development, keep an eye out for a pair of LCTs which are gearing up to open to public use: VISAR and Poiz .

eBay The eBay Classifieds mobile app employs augmented reality technology to display content on a shopper's live camera view display. EBay sellers who use the online marketplace’s free classifieds service now get another free service to help them sell that couch or motorcycle: augmented reality. Mobile consumers who download the free augmented reality app from junaio for the iPhone or phones using Google Inc.’s Android operating system are now able to see eBay classifieds listings near their location at any given moment. Here’s how it works. A tap on an ad brings up a larger photo and a complete description, and users can call the seller on the spot by touching the phone number in an ad. “One of the things we’ve been trying to do is to get buyers to the items that they want very quickly,” says Deepak Thomas, general manager of U.S. classifieds and mobile classifieds at eBay. Classifieds sellers do not need to do anything to be listed in the apps, Thomas says.
Find Great Local Deals with Anca 3D’s Groupon Layer By Adriane on March 10th 2011 While coupon-clipping is a practice generally reserved for those who still pay for a print newspaper subscription, collective-buying companies like Groupon and Living Social are growing rapidly. Both companies also now have mobile apps that allow you to view and purchase daily deals on-the-go and redeem them digitally (saving time and trees, yay!). Layar developer and Anca 3D co-founder Juan de la Torre (a recent Canadian transplant from Colombia) used Groupon’s open API to create a layer that displays nearby Groupon deals. You can search by keyword (like “restaurant,” for example) and even purchase deals from inside the layer by signing in with your Groupon account information. Currently, the Groupon API is only available in the US and Canada, so the layer is only available in those countries as well. Hopefully Groupon will get on board and add de la Torre’s AR content to its existing app!
