Mobilizy, the Austrian developers of the first mainstream Augmented Reality (AR) application for the Android Platform have been experimenting over the summer and have developed Wikitude Drive a simple navigation system with as your would expect a AR interface.
As you can see from the youtube video it’s a interesting concept, and certainly something with great potential.
My guess is that the accuracy of the GPS and Digital Compass in the current generation of mobile devices is not quite there yet to make an interface that works well for this type of application, but this is a big step forward.
It’s great to see Mobilizy continuing to innovate in this way, and they deserve every success when the product in launched soon on Android and the iPhone!
