Sep 24 2012

Woooooo we had a fantastic housewarming party that went about as well as we could have hoped and didn’t end up destroying the apartment. Then we sat around all day on Sunday because we had hangovers and also we were kinda lazy after the whole day of party planning and partying. I did manage to find a lot of links for you though so I can work that hard. Links!

There’s something in this idea (if not the implementation exactly) that strikes me as something genuinely new and worthwhile in the AR space. There’s something about using your smartphone as a magic viewing window to distant places that feels more like a smart use of a smartphone at least than most AR tech ideas.
