Sony's SmartAR Augmented Reality Looks Really Promising (Video)

Fred Wilson: Be Your Own Bitch

Last week Thursday, Sony introduced “SmartAR”, a so-called integrated Augmented Reality technology that looked pretty decent in the demo video big S uploaded that day. The company produced a new video over the weekend, and if you’re into Augmented Reality, the new footage will blow you away.

To recap, Sony says SmartAR doesn’t require markers to work, that it’s fast and accurate, designed to display content in 3D, and that it has an intuitive UI that makes it possible to interact with virtual objects even in a 3D space.

Judging by the video (in Japanese) below, this is not hard to believe, and I just hope Sony will integrate SmartAR in some form into the NGP.
