2013 began at the tail end of significant media attention for Metaio due to our brand new products andservices that we released near the end of 2012. Check out the leading news about Augmented Reality and Metaio:
- 5 reasons to get excited about Augmented Reality in 2013: Augmented reality may seem like a futuristic concept, but it will be a reality of our digital lives in 2013. AR is a new technology that blurs the line between what’s real and what’s computer generated by enhancing what we hear, see and feel. In his guest post in VentureBeat, Metaio’s Trak Lord predicts AR will be everywhere.
- 5 common Augmented Reality mistakes: There is no doubt Augmented Reality has made a name for itself in the mobile space, with marketers lining up to incorporate the technology into new and existing campaigns. Companies are however still learning, through constant trial and error (much to the chagrin of the user).
- 7 ways Augmented Reality will improve your world: You might think Augmented Reality is science fiction, but it has its roots in the 20th century. Morton Heilig, the “Father of Virtual Reality”, patented the Sensorama Stimulator, which he called an “experience theater”, on Aug. 28, 1962. Over time, the idea of using technology to create a layer over the real world has been honed and refined and put in our hands, thanks to the proliferation of smartphones.
