Augmented Planet Ltd. indicates that as of the end of June 2010, a search of the App Store revealed nearly 400 applications found by searching “augmented reality” and nearly 100 more that were augmented reality apps but didn’t use those words. In comparison, prior to September 2009, there were less than 100.
This is one more indicator of rapid growth of augmented reality.
This data confirms the the sense of optimism that our team members experienced while we attended the Augmented Reality Event conference in early June this year.
Of course with the rapidly expanding business opportunities in this space come legal issues of which companies should be aware. Our team has prepared a Legal Issues with Augmented Reality fact sheet which highlights some of the common issues faced in this space.
