Augmented reality with GART - what's changed on Windows Phone 8

I wrote an article a year and a half ago about using GART with Windows Phone to create augmented reality scenarios in really easy steps. It's linked in the GART project documentation and it gets a lot of attention and even questions from people working on Windows Phone 8 apps. The article was written with Windows Phone 7 in mind, but conidering it's still being used as reference getting started implementation, I decided to write about what has changed. The old article is here: The 6 easy implementation steps I mention are: Add…

Augmented reality session presentation

Windows Phone and Geo Augmented Reality Toolkit (GART)

This year, it was my first time ever to experience what it means to speak at a conference. I had a session at the Microsoft WinDays technology conference in Croatia, and I talked about Windows Phone multimedia and sensors. It was (and still is) an interesting combination of two topics that have much in common. Therefor it made sense to cover those in one session, which ended with augmented reality and a demo of a small augmented reality app (it was actually a video, because it's difficult to demo augmented reality during the session because it's necessary to move around)…
