Twitter 360 Augmented Reality Application

Pesselite today announced their latest augmented reality application for the iPhone. If you are a Twitter fan and  wonder where all the people you follow are tweeting from, then Presselite latest application titled Twitter 360 will show you their location on a map.  The application also has 2 augmented realtiy modes, point the device down it switches to show you arrows that show the distance of the tweet, when you hold the device in front of you the applications switches to focus on the tweets by placing them in circles.

If you have used any previous Presselite product to help you find tube (metro/subway etc) stations then you’ll find this application looks very similar as it shares the same augmented realty engine. Personally I am not a huge Twitter user, I just don’t seem to have the time to keep up so I tend to read more than take part, but I know it will appeal to many Twitter addicts.

Since I had a rant about privacy the other day I should refer you to this post. Augmented reality and geotagging is fantastic combination when you are at an event and want to see who is around you and what they are saying. But remember to turn off the feature when you don’t want to be found, unless of course you want everyone to know where you live.

Watch it in action

    Intresting apporach!
    A week ago I released “Tweeps Around” for twitter, based on the Layar platform. Here you can see all geotagged tweets posted around you and also reply to them (provided that you have a Twitter account of course).

    This may be a nice option for people who already have Layar on their device (Adroid, iPhone), you don’t need to install anything new and can immediately start looking around for those local titter users.

    And please leave me a comment with your findings!
