Wimbledon (Augmented)

IBM's just released an interesting little augmented reality application for Android: Seer.

It's an interesting little application, which works much like Wikitude, using the phone's camera, GPS, G-sensor and compass to overlay information on top of a cameras-eye view of the world (in this case, the All England Tennis Club). Or perhaps our office.

I can just about get it to distinguish between courts here in Putney, but I suspect if I were on site, it would be much more useful - as it mixes geocoded information with live feeds from the scheduling and scoring systems IBM runs for the competition. There also seems to be a feed from at least one IBM Twitter account in there...

It's a nice fun application, and a good example of the type of mobile service we can deliver right now.
