Video: Metaio Shows How New Mobile Hardware Benefits AR Performance

Shortly before the Mobile World Congress 2011, German Augmented Reality (AR) company Metaio launched a short Printer Demo to show some of the more practical uses for AR technology, namely instructional demonstrations.

At the event itself, the team took a moment to show me a different demo illustrating how new hardware and chipsets provided by their partnership with ST Ericsson, will greatly improve the reliability and performance of AR rendering on mobile devices. If you’ve ever messed around with AR software you will recognize the tracking speed improvement on the moving target in this video.
