tagwhatWe’ve talked about the basics of augmented reality and its real estate implications but haven’t seen a widely applicable augmented reality application that can be used in daily life by all people.

In steps Tagwhat, an app that turns your world into an augmented reality social network. You can tag anything anywhere and even make notes on your friends’ tags, this way when you’re walking around and you hold up your phone, you can see what your network has said about where you are. “This is where we got married!” or “I have a $25 gift certificate here, who wants to meet up?” or “This home is for sale, price just reduced 10%.”
