Augmented Reality at everyone’s fingertips thanks to 8Motions!

Augmented reality is a booming field especially for mobiles. An essential interface for future geo-located information applications, it allows users to interact with their environment via their mobiles, as if they were using a pair of reality-enhancing glasses.
Many applications have been hoping to integrate this type of functionality but have faced substantial technological barriers. The company 8Motions now lets you overcome these barriers by offering a ready-to-use component that can be integrated into any type of iPhone or Android application. It lets you show an augmented reality display of geo-located content from different sources, saved in different formats, online or offline.
