Qualcomm Vuforia gives you child-friendly augmented reality

Posted January 15, 2012 by Mike Priest in News

One of the coolest things we saw this year at CES by far was the advances that have been made in the field of Augmented Reality. At their Keynote on day one of the show Qualcomm unveiled their new Vuforia tech with a live demo showcasing an interactive prototype playset they have been working on with none other than the folks over at the Sesame Company. We had a chance to check it out first hand at their booth and were impressed with its ability to recognise and differentiate between the various objects placed in front of the tablet running the software – from jukeboxes to actual Sesame Street characters.

Check out this sizzle-reel that Qualcomm have put together outlining other potential uses for Vuforia that don’t involve Bert & Ernie.
