Augmented Reality: The Future of Online Maps

February 15, 2010 at 12:04 pm 1 comment

I’m sure you’ve all used Mapquest or Google Maps at some point. They’re generally very simple and do not allow you to virtually wander around. In the case of Google Maps, they offer something called “street view” which, to an extent, allows you to virtually travel down the street. The problem with Google’s ‘street view’ is that it is not very fluid, and it does not offer much freedom to explore. For your quiz today, check out this video below. At 8 minutes, it’s a little bit longer than most of the stuff we’ll have you watch or read, but I promise it’s worth it. This new technology is really awesome and I can’t wait until it gains popularity!

After watching the video, what do you guys think? Is this unnecessary, or is it a cool feature that would be fun to virtually explore other cities? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section. Don’t forget about your quiz, though!
