The “IT Stammtisch” Stuttgart dedicated this month’s meeting to Augmented Reality, one of the next big things in IT. Toghether with Heiko Bäuerle from KET we shed some light on markerbased and markerless Augmented Reality applications for desktop and mobile use, presented showcases and explained the technology behind it.
The awesome Rosenau bar and stage provided a great surrounding for some interesting talks. We spent most of our time to discuss the different usecases of Mobile AR in architecture, marketing, gaming, social and business applications but also learned about the Layar open platform which allows for third party content distribution in Mobile Augmented Reality.
The “IT Stammtisch” Stuttgart is organized by the Stuttgart Region Development Corporation and specifically by Hjalmar Hiemann and several regional IT companies. It is organized via the XING social network and hosts a monthly gathering covering different subjects in the field of IT.
