Walk into the myriad world of Augmented Reality and discover hereto unseen visual fingerprints with the Layar app that is available on Android Market and iTunes Store. Layar is an exciting mobile platform that uses Augmented Reality technology to bring alive the world around you with digital information as you view locations with your smartphone in real time.
This next gen app uses the smartphone’s camera, GPS, and compass to display information as you move around. Once this application is installed on your phone, you can get information about the menus of restaurants you pass by, timings of movies playing at a theater nearby, the apartments on rent in buildings you cross, and even historical monuments and their locations. The Layar platform lets developers create new apps for providing more interesting and interactive experience with real world objects by using animation and 3D. Well, it’s almost like the mall scene from the futuristic sci-fi flick, “Minority Report”, sans the eye-scanning bit.
Using the Layar app, you can simply place your smartphone over posters, menus and magazines to display digital fingerprints on them. You can experience the truly immersive quality of Layar with the UAR, Floaticons, and Shop2Go apps.
