Layar: Layar Vision Augmented Reality app with image detection, tracking and computer vision tech

“With Layar Vision, digital experiences are launched from visual triggers like magazines, posters and newspapers. Layar Vision uses computer vision techniques to augment objects in the physical world. The Layar browser can tell which objects in the real world are augmented because the visual fingerprints of the objects are preloaded into the application based upon the user’s layer selection.

When a user aims their device at an object that matches the fingerprint, the app instantaneously returns the associated AR experience. This new functionality lets layers become truly immersive as seemingly ordinary objects come alive with interactivity.”
