Augmented Reality TED Talk

Augmented reality has long been touted as an emerging technology, not just in GIS fields, but in personal electronics also. Smart phones bring the capacity for millions of users to use augmented reality on an everyday basis. However, its uptake has been slow and limited to those with a deeper interest in the technology. This TED Talk given by Blaise Ag├╝era y Arcas aims to change the perspective of augmented reality and show off its true potential. He demonstrates the augmented reality mapping technology embedded in Bing maps that shows what is possible with the technology and how it could change the way we view the world around us.
