While the Gametel controller is currently only available in Europe, it is expected to be available in the US sometime in Q1 and could cost between $50 and $75. The Gametel driver is available now as a free download on the Android Market, however the iOS version is currently in the Apple testing phase to be available in the Apple iTunes Appstore. The driver is compatible with Android 2.1.1 or later, iPads running iOS 3.2 or later, and iPhones running iOS 4.0 or later.
ST Ericsson was showing off their latest augmented reality application. Using the smartphone’s camera and image recognition technology, ST Ericsson’s app then overlays additional imagery on the screen. In the concept demo ST Ericsson was showing at CES Unveiled, a consumer could walk in a store and use augmented reality to see what a Lego sculpture looked like already assembled in 3D when pointing their camera at the box. This could be a powerful feature in the years to come!
