No, the dragons in my life aren’t named Mike Arrington, although we did have a fun little debate over on Techcrunch the other day.
When I visited Munich I dropped by Metaio’s headquarters where they showed me their latest augmented reality prototype, which puts a virtual character onto a building. You can see it for yourself.
This was just a little fun in the snow, but later this week Metaio will put its augmented reality expertise to work on a major sporting event. More on that when the embargo ends.
Hope you enjoy this video from the snow of Munich. Damn it was cold! 🙂

Robert, you see, we need you here in europe, as well 🙂
When I was little, we had to imagine our imaginary friends. This is really just waiting for wearables, to make shared games with virtual participants.
A game facilitator could build comparable environments in multiple cities, and players could interact with each other (and fictional characters) as if all were in one location.
That’s cool! i hope I can use this for call of duty : black ops! That would be so amazing! And I am carrying a real gun and shot this augmented reality! LOL
Quite interesting AR technology work from good old europe!
Combining mobile with AR, and I see this as a great technology opportunity for digital signage and digital out-of-home advertising.
