Augmented Reality on Bing at Ted

@Tim | Social

This year’s Ted conference was another smashing success, again offering us insight into some of the farthest reaching studies across the globe.  This demo by Blaise Aguera y Arcas of new augmented-reality mapping technology from Microsoft floored the crowd.

Augmented-reality mapping technology by Bing could redefine the way we interact with maps.  When you listen to some of the integration points (flickr, world wide telescopes, photosynth processes), the layers and details of information is just mind-bending… never-mind imagining this technology in the palm of your hand someday via your Smartphone.
