IBM Seer Application 2010
The award winning IBM Seer application is back with a 2010 update and is ‘the’ essential application for tennis fans attending Wimbledon this year. If you haven’t heard of Seer, it tells you everything you need to know about what is happening at Wimbledon, and when we say everything we really mean everything.
Watch live video streams of the action taking place on other courts, live video of the queues for the taxis, and of course the augmented reality view that shows you where all the amenities are located. Not only that but you can get real-time information on the queues. So if you fancy spending a weeks pay on strawberries and cream, the augmented reality view will help you find the nearest sellers and give you details of the queue length so you won’t miss any of the tennis action.
IBM Seer, which is based on the Wikitude browser technology, is one of my favourite examples of augmented reality. It’s so incredibly well thought out. Combining streaming video, real-time local data and augmented reality makes it such a compelling application. It’s little wonder that the application has won numerous awards in the past.
IBM Seer will be available for free from the 21st June in the Android Market and Apple AppStore
