Hands on with the future of augmented reality: Qualcomm Vuforia ‘Smart Terrain’


Qualcomm’s Vuforia division continues to impress me each year at CES. We already showed you some of the newer apps utilizing the Vuforia platform, but now it’s time to look at the future. Qualcomm Vice President of Business Development, Jay Wright, gave me a glimpse of Vuforia “Smart Terrain” and it blew me away.

With Smart Terrain, apps can see real world objects and calculate their height, weight, and depth to build visuals for interaction. With just a few objects, you can literally create your own battlefield. Just aim a smartphone or tablet equipped with a 3D camera at the objects and this app will map out a 3D grid around them. You have to see it to believe it.

Check out this hands on video after the break and be amazed.
