Nokia Preps Live View Augmented Reality Browser, Demoed on N8
The good folks over at the Nokia Beta Labs are always cooking up something new and exciting and this time it’s Live View, and augmented reality browser, a little bit in the vein of LG’s ScanSearch available in the Marketplace for LG Windows Phone users.
Upon launching the application, the smartphone will display real-time location information and points of interest based on the surrounding, overlaying the bits to the camera application. It is definitely a great way to discover places, points of interest using both location data as well as the real-time images of the surroundings. Check out a short demo of the app on an N8 below and fingers crossed it will be part of Nokia’s standard offering on future devices, let them be Windows Phone or other.
