Augmented reality business card has me thinking …

July 24, 2009 by Dave Haynes

Augmented reality apps keep popping up, and while they still look not quite there, the possibilities continue to be more and more intriguing for network operators looking to have interactive elements.

Consider this slightly cumbersome and flakey business card app, as spotted on Gizmodo. It is a 3D hologram that pops the developers image on a business card and even maps to Twitter and allows mobile calling, somehow or other, within the application. Im not sure if the camera that picks up the printed image could pick up a JPG of it, on a phone screen, but if so, some interesting things could start happening in front of shop windows.
