just came across the great piece about using AR in a museum.

I love the fact they made an iphone into a giant loupe/magnifying glass, and it became more native to hold it up and look through it rather than use it as a mobile device.

Augmented Reality idea


<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/88233719″>meSch prototype: the loupe</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/waag”>Waag Society</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

Perhaps I could create something  that would work in the same physical way as their ‘loupe’ but be associated with birdwatching, ie  binoculars, again removing people from the device and making it more secure
