Websign: hyperlinks from a physical location to the web

"By using a simple form of augmented reality, the system allows users to visualize services related to physical objects of interest. The websign system provides infrastructure not just for detecting websigns but also for creating and deploying them. In this paper we present the concept, an overview of the prototype and the algorithms used in the implementation." If you're a cranky bastard, like me, you'll be sure to read An Introduction to Augmented Reality to learn what, exactly, the distinctions between augmented and virtual realities are. Let me just point out that the fact that art-nerds have three (?) volumes of Artspeak with which to sully the general discourse is nothing to be envious of. (pdf)
