Today's Vision of Tomorrow: Augmented Reality-Boosted Beer Drinking, Via Stella Artois
http://www.fastcompany.com/blog/kit-eaton/technomix/todays-vision-tomorrow-augmented-reality-boosted-beer-drinking-stella-artoi?
Stella Artois has just launched an AR iPhone app dubbed Le Bar Guide that is, so the company says, the "first global 3D augmented reality iPhone bar guide." Essentially it's an AR app that tells you where you can sink a glass of Stella's finest beer nearby to your present location, wherever that may be on the planet.

Doug Vining Check your date

So now you can use a simple smartphone app to check people out. Like a new employee, or someone who wants to join your network, or maybe that 'blind' date your friends fixed you up with.

Of course, you could just Google them, or look at their Facebook profile. Some information is considered private by the individual, but is actually in public records somewhere. Like properties registered in your name, or school records.

But think about the future, when this kind of information is available real-time, via an augmented reality interface. You meet someone for the first time, and your smart specs just verify them for you on the spot. I think there are a few business models there for both sides of the transaction!

According to various sources of differing credibility, Google could be developing the Seventh Sense spectacles that we suggested in this MindBullet.

Neil Jacobsohn Better than reality!

Augmented reality devices are getting closer and closer, through services like Layar and Google Goggles. Here's what this technology has in store for us. Fascinating!

Doug Vining Better than reality!

Just a pity that a lot of these apps are confined to the US, and the US App Store, for now...
Could that be the killer app for Android? Open and free AR apps?

Doug Vining The augmented society

We can all think of many cool personal and business applications for augmented reality. It will also become an ubiquitous feature of modern life in the future, just like mobile phones are today.

But just like mobile phones, augmented reality will transform society. Here are some of the impending consequences of data driven living, courtesy of Mashable.

Doug Vining Just like a seventh sense

Seven years ago we wrote a MindBullet about "Seventh Sense" - augmented reality wearable tech that connects you to the real world and gives you "superpowers". In February of this year, Meron Gribetz demonstrated what that would be like.
