Today’s Augmented Reality “Thing” No.1

In what could be considered as partial revenge for the near saturation coverage that the cool Google Glasses received on the Internet, I have decided to every now and again to scan the Internet for something old or new which uses augmented reality. It could be a hack, a game or anything. It could be good, it could even be terrible.

Today’s lucky or unlucky winner (depends on if their marketing department like being on this site) is a prototype from Samsung where Augmented Reality meets TV! It’s more of a concept right now but does suggest how perhaps in future TV will move from being in one place to all around you. Indeed I once worked on a related concept, of course our project idea was much better. Well atleast we liked to think so.
