Bing Maps Add Augmented Reality, Dwarfs Google Maps

TED Talk blows us away

Blaise Aguera y Arcas is the architect of Being Maps at Microsoft, you may remember his demonstration of Photosynth a few years back. In the TED2010 Talk below, Blaise demonstrates Microsoft Bing’s new augmented reality mapping technology and while the first few minutes are slow, watch the entire video because it will blow your mind.

The implications in the real estate industry for this kind of technology are endless- Bing goes inside buildings and can be used as an augmented reality tool. We’ve talked about augmented reality 101 and even shown you an iPhone app for facial recognition and another for real estate, but this technology that already exists is miles ahead of where Google is.

    Wow that was cool! I especially liked the view of the sky from anywhere in the world.

    Not to mention the ability to add flikr photos, so you could add interior photo of real estate listings, or show the world the inside of your actual retail store.

    I am going to have to go over to Bing and check this out after this post.

    Thanks for sharing,
