No Comments

FINGER-64x64We are proud to announce the launch of the first of several Layars we have created for European Directories went live on Thursday for Zlate Stranky in the Czech Republic.

A press conference at 9am officially marked the launch with a number of Prague’s jounalists in attendence. The app has been positively received and covered in several online reviews. Here’s a great video demonstration (in Czech) by mobilmania.cz with a feature testing the application “in the wild”:

European Directories Group VP of Mobile, Carey Bunks, said the following:

AugmentReality developed several layers for European Directories, and I am very pleased with the quality of the work delivered, as well as impressed by their very professional level of customer service. I can highly recommend AugmentReality to any company considering the development of a Layar layer.

AR Lab#02: Augmented Reality Autos

“From Our AR Lab”

Every now and then we do stuff in testing that will never see the light of day….. that is, until now.

Concept:

Placing a 3D version of a new car in Augmented Reality is now possible with Layar. Couple this with an audio and video tour and you’ve got a great tool for selling autos. This is an early concept – the positioning and altitude issues seen in the screenshots can easily be ironed out in a production version.

The new “AR lab” category of this blog will show you some screenshots of our concepts… and, maybe if there’s sufficient demand to produce it, we will.
