Much Ado About Augmented Reality?

My question to you is, do you believe in Augmented Reality?

In many ways, the notion of augmented reality is similar to 3D in a sense that expectations have been set high, but it hasn’t quite delivered.  We expected HUD in cars that help us with directions and more; we expected augmented reality glasses that help us with what we are seeing — and we expected this to happen a decade ago.  Hm…

Recently, there’s been a lot of talk about iPhone 3.1 that will enable real-time overlays for applications like augmented reality stuff.  Definitely looking forward to what will happen there, and what type of innovations will be pushed from this community.

Personally, I think there’s a lot more innovation in technology and UI/UX for AR to succeed.  Image recognition algorithms are not robust enough for general scenes (like in our every-day lives), but when supplemented with GPS, compass, accelerometers, and other sensors just might work and be useful.

What do you think?
