TagWhat.com – Augmenting Realities For Me & You

  • May 7, 2010

TagWhat.comTagWhat is self-touted as the first system in the world for the creation and distribution of augmented realities. The expression “augmented reality” here refers to a process whereby information is displayed over any image you are capturing on your mobile when using its camera.

TagWhat empowers everybody to create his own pieces of “augmented reality” and come up with maps which can become accompanied by texts, images, videos and also URLs.

The idea is to let users of TagWhat share these augmented realities, effectively creating an experience that is as broad as one could only begin to imagine.

Verily, such a tool makes for seeing the world through the eyes of others. For example, if you are traveling to a foreign country you can use this system to know exactly how a local sees the surroundings you are going to become immersed in, and how he proceeds about the city in a natural way. You can learn about these places where food can be bought at the most convenient prices, where to head to in order to chill out… as you can see, the possibilities are limitless. It will be exciting to see where this system is taken to next.
