Wikitude 6.1 Offers Tablet Optimized Augmented Reality

Wikitude, a key player in the Augmented Reality game since the days of the first Android Developers Challenge, has just updated their AR browser.  Available in the Android Market today, version 6.1 is now optimized for tablets running Honeycomb. This means those of you with a Xoom, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, and G-Slate can take advantage of the browser that enhances the world around you.

Coupling your current location with the camera on your tablet (or phone), you can locate nearby places, tweets, images, and more.  These Wikitude “worlds” include Yelp, Flickr, YouTube videos, Tweets, Wikipedia entries, to name just a few.  And it’s not all novelty stuff either as you can hunt down restaurants, ATM’s, local shops and other points of interest.  To describe how it works is one thing, to see it in action is entirely different. You should definitely download Wikitude 6.1 to your Android 1.5+ device today and give it a shot.
