Peak.ar demonstrates the augmented reality technology that was developed in the course of a recent research project. It is a very flexible tool that can be used to visualize any kind of geo-referenced data. At the same time it is the most intuitive way for interfacing with complex data from a user’s perspective – just point your iPhone to some real world object and it will tell you everything it knows about it. Lets not forget, its slick as hell!
Imagine your own data being presented in a completely new, cool fashion. Right now, we are looking for cooperations with innovative companies to explore new application domains of this exciting technology.
