Martin Lechner lead developer of “Mobilizy” sees this as a springboard into the American market, “because, of course, Silicon Valley still for software companies is the measure of all things. And the closer the Silicon Valley, the easier it is doing as a company and potential customers attract investors to shore. “
Wikitude team had to go on a photo for a newspaper. I will ad a link when it is online.

Wikitude (the makers of the first AR browser on a mobile in the world) have released a GEO-tagging website that helps developers to use there application.
Mobilizy GmbH introduces enhancements to its award winning WIKITUDE Mobile AR Platform, focusing on end users and opening up an application-programming interface (API) for developers. The enhanced WIKITUDE Mobile AR Platform consists of three components:
1. WIKITUDE World Browser – The original mobile AR browser and travel guide.
2. WIKITUDE.me – Wiki-tag your world (user generated geo-tagging portal)
3. WIKITUDE API – Build your own augmented reality application.
I wish them the best of luck!
Here is a visible screen shot provided to us via a tweet from @Wikitude
Lets hope that they have there App ready real soon. The competition is high. Good luck guys.
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.
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!
