Top news around the augmented reality sites seems to be about the iPhone 3.1 release in September and how it will allow for AR apps. Will be interesting to see how this changes some business plans.
Before that all the talk was about the augmented reality business card from James Alliban. Jonas from Toxin was disappointed that his product hadn’t gotten as much notice. Personally, I think it had more to do with the 3D graphics presented on James’ and less with the application of AR. But now Jonas has gotten notice from Geek Brief TV and come out with his own Augmented Business Card website, proving that if you want something, you have to ask for it.
Next we see a couple of examples of an AR Game called Daft Mania developed for a contest called “Are You Better Than Microsoft.” The game is similar to Guitar Hero, but with less expensive instruments.
And last, another example of the AR Game from the new James Cameron Avatar film.
