Did you ever want to embed your published layer on Layar in you own iPhone app? Now you can!
The client doesn’t need to have Layar installed it will be shipped in a snippet (binary include) for your Xcode project.
More info on the Layar Player site

SAP has talked about a proof of concept about AR a while back.
The application is called Augmented Explorer [Prototype].
The prototype was developed using the Layar application.
But from the new screenshots
I can’t find a Layar reference anymore. [link]
It seems to be working on iPad/iPhone, hope to see more of it soon.

A white-label version of the Layar application has been spotted in the wild named UAR.
As in Urban Augmented Reality .
It is an application for the Dutch Architectural institute and shows information about buildings and building to be build.
http://www.nai.nl/uar is the Dutch language site.
Apple iTunes download.
It seems that this application is not a real white-label service but instead uses a “launcher” application that uses links to preload URLs into Layar.
Smart move by the UAR team, and therefore not something that Layar has made available.

Layar has been presenting at Google Zeitgeist in London.

In the upcoming days SXSW is unfolding.
It seems that Layar has something to tell us there @marlooz has made a picture of a card in her goody bag.
Is Symbian pronouncing the Layar launch a bit too early? Lets wait and see.

Layar has opened a API key request page.
According to there press-release they have a new strategy.
If you are interested in developing a Layer for there browser than got to http://layer.com/API and signup for a key request.
It is unclear to me what a developer can do with this key. There a no guidelines that I know of. So lets just what until next month.

Yesterday at the terras we did some layar testing.
We where looking at a Android HTC magic phone with the Layar application installed in the Netherlands.
Real world layar (c) @marcfonteijn
My first findings are that the application could use some tweaking to optimize performance. The sliders to shorten the radar view are unworkable IMO.
But to conclude the findings, I don’t realy find it usefull as for a bussiness case but it sure is loads of fun.
To find an ATM because layar tells me that it is the clossest in birdflight perpective is not that handy in the real world if there is a channel (water) in between it.
The Hyves.nl point of info stuff is very handy. The yellowpages could also be good if you could pick the type of bussiness.
Jobs: I personly find this useless. It doesn’t tell me anything about the fact that the job is interesting for me. I don’t want to see an opening for a cleaning lady. This layar is more a campagne branding thing for the job company.
It would be best if there is a AR directory on which one can select a layer of intrest and use that in there desired application/AR browser. The App-store of layers if you wil!

There are several AR twitter users you should follow to keep up to date on AR.
This search will also show you nice info
If you know any more then please mention them in the comments and I will ad them to the list in this post.
Thanks @Wikitude !
