It’s time to create an open source geolocative AR platform! Apple’s purchase of Metaio was great to bring AR to the world’s attention, and a total disaster for people who had been using the platform for years and suddenly saw their projects become obsolete.
AR using image tracking, 3D mapping etc. requires complicated technology that is in fact still a developing field. But GPS based geolocative augmented reality is relatively easy and it would be no problem to write an open source system that the community could expand upon.Peter Graf started building the open source geolocative augmented reality platform ARVOS, but currently does not have time to bring it to completion.
