Android’s not safe from odd apps either. Masternaut has developed an augmented reality system for iPhone and Android devices, which it says give users “a real world view of the job they are about to perform and with it we can give them precisely what they need to get it done.” Masternaut reckons the system is good for pothole spotters. “For highway maintenance, the system will quickly get maintenance teams to defects such as potholes. Just by pointing camera phone at the road the engineer will get an instant visual view of the problem with the job requirements.”
Downtime wonders how else could people will actually use this app – point it at something (or someone) and get precise instructions on how to get the job done.
