Golfscape Augmented Reality Ranger Finder
If you’re a golf fan and looking for that extra edge out on the course then augmented reality could provide an answer. Golfscape is an iPhone application that comes with the course details for over 35,000 golf courses worldwide. Using the application you are able to see the course overview, hazards, distance to the green etc and make a better choice of club.
What makes Golfscape different from the hundreds of other course guides is, just by holding up your iPhone to the course and using the camera, you’ll be able to see the distance to the pin and a real-time placement of what obstacles lay in wait for you.
The application hasn’t been released yet, just the promotional video which looks interesting. But… we all know that GPS is not accurate, sometimes with an accuracy of as much 180 +/- meters. So it will be interesting to see just how accurate the application is.
