The Future of DIY #augmentedreality


Here is the most down to earth, everyday, useful application of Augmented Reality (AR) I have seen to date. It’s not a quatum leap to see any type of instruction manual or DIY book using this kind of system. Yes right now the cost of the technology is prohibitive, but the usefulness outweighs the complexity – a solution has to be found.

I’d heard of this but never seen the video before. It’s the marines using AR to speed up repair time on military hardware in the field. They wear goggles that give them a head up display that overlays various arrows and pointers to inform each step. It’s awesome. Take a look.

(Thanks to @killer_bunnie for the find). Source article here.

Amazing - Yes please! Best AR apps I've found so far are a cashpoint finder (from a Danish bank) and a Navigator that shows location of bookmarked Google Maps locations - all on iPhone.
