Mobile snaps reveal invisible art

My friend Kim wrote some random thoughts in her blog about a new technology on our mobiles that allows users to snap a picture with thier mobile camera to reveal invisible art or share there location.

“Scottish researchers are turning camera phones to help bridge the virtual world and the real world. Using image-matching algorithms the researchers have found a way to adorn the real world with digital content.

The technology has already been used to create a guide of Edinburgh that allows people to find virtual artworks placed around the city using their mobile.

Another related project uses the technology to automatically update a person’s blog with their location.
