Press Release by GeoVector

GeoVector® Corporation, the leading provider of “advanced search” capabilities for location-based applications, today announced an additional patent within its augmented reality technology family.

US Patent 7301536 better enables mobile phones or other devices to display stored digital images which are linked to real-world objects or places.

“Imagine pointing a mobile device down a city street and seeing a digital image of how that street looked a century ago, or might look a century from now. Imagine pointing at a new car billboard and seeing the car in any color you want, then downloading a video clip,” explained John Ellenby, GeoVector’s CEO. “GeoVector’s technology enables countless possibilities for entertainment, advertising or e-commerce applications.”

GeoVector currently enables mobile devices to access data on points of interest using a unique combination of GPS and a built-in compass. The new patent builds upon that capability, allowing users to interact with stored images based on their surroundings.

The company currently provides products and services which significantly simplify local searches, allowing users to point their mobile device toward objects of interest to access information about them. Users can “point and click” with their mobile phone the way a computer user navigates using a mouse.

“With the real world as your desktop, the possibilities are endless,” Ellenby said. (…)
