I looked at several Augmented Reality apps (or AR apps) such as TAT Augmented ID, Layar, TwitARound, Nearest Tube and Wikitude just to name a few. Some of these AR apps I could see how they would be very useful, while some actually creeped me out! The following are a few questions I had regarding AR apps:
The AR app TAT uses facial recognition to pull up information about a person, i.e. contact and profile info. Why would someone want to use an app like TAT?
Can this type of technology lead to us giving out too much personal information?
Are AR apps becoming the new big trend over QR codes?
