Great AR book for free at AP2011 event

In an earlier post we mentioned that we are supporting the Augmented Planet (AP2011) on June 1 and 2 in Kensington, London as Gold Sponsor with Samsung bada. There are still discounted tickets available (see here). But is not what this post is about.

The organisers of AP2011 told us that every attendee will get a free copy of the just released book Professional Augmented Reality Browsers for Smartphones: Building Mobile Augmented Reality and Image Recognition Applications which is worth some 22 quid on Amazon. Below is some info about the book.

On some 360 pages the book Professional Augmented Reality Browsers for Smartphones guides you through creating your own augmented reality apps for the iPhone, Android, Symbian, and bada platforms, featuring fully workable and downloadable source code.

Professional Augmented Reality Browsers for Smartphones:
  • Describes how to use the latitude/longitude coordinate system to build location–aware solutions and tells where to get POIs for your own augmented reality applications
  • Details the leading augmented reality platforms and highlights the best applications
  • Covers development for the leading augmented reality browser platforms: Wikitude, Layar, and junaio
  • Shows how to build cross–platform location–aware content (Android, iPhone, Symbian, and bada) to display POIs directly in camera view
  • Includes tutorials for building 2D and 3D content, storing content in databases, and triggering actions when users reach specific locations
The book will be handed out on the second day of the AP2011 event, so make sure to stay until the end ;)

We -- as the Samsung bada guys -- will be at the event too as presenters, MCs, and in the podium AND we will bring many of our Introduction to bada books, which we will also give away for free. And if that fact escaped you, we provide several chapters of our book on the bada developer site for free. More chapters are about to come.
