Augmented Reality comes to Android tablets via Wikitude 6.1

There are a few Augmented Reality (AR) apps out there like Layar, Junaio, and Wikitude, but none of them could be used on a Honeycomb tablet. Well, thanks to Wikitude’s latest update (6.1), it is now possible to use your tablet’s camera to find places around you.

It is compatible with the Motorola XOOM, LG Optimus Pad, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. The problem is everyone seems to be leaving their tablets at home, but now that we have AR, I think it is time we take it with us, and wave that 10-inch screen in the air to find the nearest Dunkin Donuts.

About the Author: Robert Nazarian

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
