  1. Great images; we just can’t seem to describe AR via words can we?

    My biggest curiosity with AR is the geo-tagging element. So far less than .023% of smart phone users have enabled their device to know where they are. I think this will be the biggest challenge in broader AR market acceptance.

    Also, as long as each AR service uses their own unique ( proprietary ) way of doing things, AR will never change the world. They need to all agree upon an open standard.

    “I think it’s going to be very important. We’re open to talking to anybody and seeing what we can make happen. Anyone who creates a service on our platform can publish elsewhere. Our reach will be in installations and content and making sure other parties are on there. We don’t do negative things. The lock-ins and exclusivity won’t work. Openness and interoperability are where it’s going; we’re going to discover how exactly with other people. I used to work with VRM and Doc Searls. That’s where it’s going: control to the user.” – Layar o-founder Maarten Lens-FitzGerald

  7. I believe the shift of AR onto the iPhone 3Gs and various Android models represents a period in time analogous to the Gopher browser. It’s for this reason that next week I’ll introduce the world’s first commercial Augmented Reality Conference (at http://arconf.com).
