Augmented reality – tagging the world!

Augmented reality

Imagine this: You’re traveling on a desert highway out West, and you see a lone stone fort set back from the road.  The old stone structure looks interesting, and you wonder about its history.  You pull out your phone, aim it at the fort, and poof, a full description of the stone structure and its history pops up on your phone’s screen, telling you when it was built, what happened there, and who owns it today.

That’s augmented reality.

And it’s coming, soon. Check out these two glimpses into the future of storytelling, travel, and social networking:
