Building Augmented Reality Environments

General
Location: Ballroom IV Level: Novice

Having a compass and camera built into smart phones opens up possibilities for augmented reality (AR). Programmers now know more than just location; by also knowing which direction the phone is facing, you can overlay objects on users’ view of the world.
