André Meyer, a student and developer at MIT Innovation AG, talks about and demonstrates TouchMountain. This innovative application makes awesome use of augmented reality to help users identify the mountain peaks around them, and then get additional information on the peaks such as facts, weather, and even view nearby webcams. Created as part of a 12 week university project, André explains that the app benefited from input from Nokia and Microsoft as well as Nokia’s community of developers and users. Talking about augmented reality André says “the possibilities are endless, that’s the great thing about it.”
TouchMountain was the Technology Showcase winner in the Lumia Geek 8-Week Challenge.
