GOD, I have ideas how this Markerless Augmented Reality implemented in games.

Although, "if" somewhat my ideas & imagination would be the same with the real version of NGP's AR in the future later...

They showed it off over at GDC 2011:

But it should be noted that the smartphone used in the latest vid probably has a higher resolution while the NGP is modified for better speed. If i remember, i read somewhere it would be 60FPS or something but it'll mainly be used for gaming purposes.

Wether they'll use it for gaming or not remains to be seen, but it would be awsome to get a new Eyepet or a new Eye of Judgement game using this tech.

Surprise announcement for PS3 at E3 anyone?

"Surprise announcement for PS3 at E3 anyone? "

I would say it's not really a surprise announcement, really is just an evolution to AR that Sony has been developing on for a while, look at the EyePet as a great example, an Many Android Smart phone can generate AR effects without the need for markers, though that is done with pre-baked in AR objects, Sony is along with other's perfecting this Technology an Sony is developing it along nicely it seems.

I think this is showing that AR is another game development Type that will get more developers excited with this technology to create Game theory an design that will take advantage of this technology.

Its Not just Sony that is developing it though, but I think they are one of the companies out there that see the gaming advantage of enhanced AR. Nintendo, Microsoft, Apple an Google also does AR, but i do not think they put in as much progress for their AR as Quickly as Sony has, but you know they will not be long before they also move forward with Enhanced Form of AR.

I have to totally disagree with your "Nintendo, Microsoft, Apple an Google also does AR, but i do not think they put in as much progress for their AR as Quickly as Sony has" statement.

Some of the AR research shown by MS and Google so far is simply amazing: The "Google goggles" technology for example is the state of the art IMO, and if you read about some of the stuff doe by Microsoft research (like spacecam) is jaw dropping. also, even their first Kinect Demo (which is still a vision) showed that they see all kinds of advantages it can have for gaming.

While i can see your point I would still say not as quickly to employ a non marker/on the fly AR animation of static images is not the direction they were taking with their AR.

As for what you pointed out with AR about Google Goggles an Microsoft's I would have to agree 100% with what you said, when i stated that I was talking about this part of the AR enhancement I was talking about the direction in what development Sony was taking with their AR development's.

Like Sony is not as far as i can tell is putting in more developing resources into a area of AR research that for example Google has done with "Google Goggles"

Im sorry if it came across as they were not doing their own enhancement in AR an were not as fast as Sony I was not talking about AR as a whole.

what i was posting an talking about was only the part about Sony development with their Smart AR into Static image animation Augmentation.

Like i said Sony i think is developing this part of their AR enhancement faster than the other's, Sorry if i was not as clear on that.
