TED (it stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design) always manages to deliver when it comes to cutting edge stuff.
After all thats why it exists.
Just in case you missed it a few weeks back, at this months TED2010, in a demo that according to reports, drew gasps from the audience, and afforded the presenter a standing ovation afterwards, Blaise Aguera y Arcas, from Microsoft, demonstrated new augmented-reality mapping technology from his company.
Augmented Reality is very relevant to the future of Real Estate Marketing, I spoke about it here last June as a primer for readers.
Who is Blaise, well he just happens to be the architect of Bing Maps at Microsoft, and is working to build augmented reality into searchable maps.
Watch this and see if you don’t agree.
Certainly is a forerunner of what the agent in 2015 may be showing on his own website, perhaps broadcasting from his Open Day?
Or imagine a setup like this for an on-site auction, would it be helpful if out of town/overseas telephone buyers could see the other bidders?
