Mobilizy Proposes Open AR Markup Language
It’s been a big day for Augmented Reality news. On the heels of the announcement of Layar’s support for 3D objects, Mobilizy, maker of Wikitude World Browser, announced that it’s proposing an open Augmented Reality markup language (ARML).
ARML would be based on KML and “enriched with custom extensions.”
The basic idea behind this specification is that data that is prepared using this specification can be viewed on augmented reality browsers likeÂ Wikitude but also in Google Earth. Augmented reality browsers can include an open URL dialog where the user can enter an URL pointing to a valid ARML document. For instance such a document can contain all affiliates of a company. People can easily bookmark those URLs.
ReadWriteWeb notes that “such a step would remove one of the five barriersÂ to AR that we recently wrote about: interoperability. Cross-platform, open development standards would allow users more ways to see more AR content. … It will also accelerate innovation and allow for more, better, and less expensive AR apps.”
This video from Mobilizy sums it up to the tune of a “Cinemax: After Dark” soundtrack:
