Just looking at this off a 68Cal.com link, thought I'd re-post for our commenting pleasure.

Similar to the Blue Force Tracker. It would be pretty cool and useful if it takes off. It has it's pros and cons.

I recall a system like this that worked with your phone.

I think I just got a little too excited.......oh god.....it's like Christmas.....I'm in.


Playing around with it right now. Seems pretty solid. Though you would need a cheap and/or rugged device to run it. Either marker mounted or arm mounter seems like the best option. iPhone with an otter case would be alright. Or, you know, could go all out with the itronix GP300 from General Dynamics, though the lack of a camera would prevent AR use.

Indy still posts around on other websites...but this is very similar technology. Seems they have a bit more funding than Indy did. This would be more useful to track a squad...not every player would need to have this running. That could actually get a bit hectic.

I love the idea. I hope they create an app though. I'm only on the regular 3G phone and it seems to be dragging. Very cool concept, I'm gonna try to get a few of my friends to try it out at our next big game.

Just found this...it's like 2 generations past, but has some good ideas built into it that could mesh well with this GPS-based AR stuff.

Also, the products and ideas here are quite fresh.
