I stumbled upon Vuforia, Qualcomm’s Augmented Reality (AR) platform and was pleased to note that big guns like Qualcomm are behind the adoption of this technology. Qualcomm is a R&D powerhouse in the mobile industry and their involvement in Augmented Reality augurs well for the technology. The platform was realesed in 2011 and earlier this year, Qualcomm announced an Augmented Reality application for Sesame Street. Check out this video.
Also check out Sify’s work in this space. I think this is a precourser for the increased adoption of Augmented Reality for educational purposes.
