Where in the World Is Augmented Reality?

Location: Ballroom IV Level: Intermediate
Average rating: ****.
(4.67, 3 ratings)

Augmented reality is among the most engaging ways ever developed to interact with the consumer – to make the consumer part of the brand, the story, the overarching message. In order for AR to truly touch consumers, it’s vital to develop applications that make the most of what smartphones have to offer. That means full compatibility with the majority of next-generation mobile phones; that is, the ability to operate seamlessly on Symbian, Windows Mobile, the iPhone, and Android devices. And to rely on fully robust, proven augmented reality tools and technologies.

What then? Bruno Uzzan, CEO and Co-founder of Total Immersion (www.t-immersion.com) – the global leader in augmented reality – will answer the “what then?” question with a flourish. Uzzan will paint a picture of a world where GPS (among other things) is ubiquitous – where point-and-shoot will come to mean exposure to information that could hardly be more context-sensitive or (as conveyed in 3D) more compelling. Wandering around Prague? Aim your phone over there and, in a heartbeat, you’re navigating the city in your native language.

And that’s just where it begins.
