The manner of the defeat is not relevant to augmented reality technology in any sense, but I’d like to think that it provides anecdotal evidence that I’d been planning this blog well before this article appeared on the BBC website. I’d gone to the game with a friend from university, who happens to work for the software development company Autonomy. Augmented reality for mobile devices isn’t anything new. It’s easy to think that with the speed of progress – I can well see my iPhone 3GS being obsolete in less than three years, and I only bought it last year.
