Augmented Reality on mobiles is currently without question one of the hottest research fields. A new application from Metaio is taking the concept a step forward allowing users to leave tweets, messages, web pages and 3D models in a real space for other users to view or pick up when there are in the vicinity.

This opens up a whole number of new development routes from augmented graffiti to leaving a virtual message outside someones apartment if they are out through to tagging locations, restaurants and services with virtual comments for users to view by simply pointing the mobile device at the location.

The application is currently under development for iPhone, Google Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 platforms.

    reminds me of William Gibson’s latest novel “Spook Country”, in which artists use such AR technology to create installations in public space
