Virtual reality is already an amazing invention online – but this is not if it has no connection to the real world. This is why you need to know about this augmented reality platform and how it entertains people while having a glimpse into our existence.
Venture Beat featured: Ambarish “Rish” Mitra, the CEO of Blippar, speaks about an augmented reality platform that dozens of brands are using to add interactivity to their products. Point the Blippar app at a logo and you can unlock virtual games, extra content, and the like. But Blippar is also working on AI technology that can identify ordinary objects in the real world, like chairs, dogs, birds, and more. Mitra tells us what it means to build an augmented reality platform, one that developers could use to add information and interactivity to the whole world around us.
It added: Plus, Jordan Novet and I tell you what to think about:
