Our core business is innovation. Doing new things that we see as promising. Things like Context Services and Augmented Reality that we envision as adding to the world in the future. And making that happen now. Wikitude does that now.
While forging these new paths you get used spearheading them. To be the first in one way or the other. Its part of the kick. But once in a while you see someone way ahead of you. Off in the distance on the same path and with a clearer view. Jyri did that. Verner and Joe too.
At Ugotrade, Tish Shute posted an AR overview and an interview with Robert Rice. Go to the source and read it. Print it. Share it. Its long and worth it. It will help you shape your opinion and understand Augmented Reality and Virtual Worlds like SL. You will get a sense of the state of Augmented Reality.
For us this post is great because it is so ahead yet on the same path we are on with Zcapes. Zcapes is at the foothold of Augmented Reality. Zcapes will be a base of content to build your augmented real world. Its a start of something very big. And that big thing is what Robert Rice seems to be building at Neogence: An immersive mobile augmented reality platform with tools, sdk, and infrastructure plus applications. Looking forward to that.
