Chips

With AR gaining speed quickly and more players arriving on the hardware scene to join the Glass, I thought I would look at what is driving this hardware and recent developments.

Metaio have officially announced that they will be making a chip with ST-Ericsson for mobile devices. This article (http://gigaom.com/2013/02/22/metaios-augmented-reality-chip-will-be-super-useful-just-not-in-phones/) has the same view that smart phones are great for AR in short bursts. And with a big emphasis on battery life it would suggest that it would be more useful in a wearable device. Metaio and Ericsson are reportedly supplying Nokia with the chip who are already fans of AR with City Lens could this mean a pair of AR glasses from Nokia soon?
