Augmented Reality for Marketers and Developers: Our Newest Research Report

We’re pleased to announce ReadWriteWeb’s latest premium report, Augmented Reality for Marketers and Developers: Analysis of the Leaders, the Challenges and the Future.

This report will help you develop a sophisticated understanding of Augmented Reality (AR), the mobile and web technology that places data on top of a user’s view of the physical world. The research included will help you decrease your AR development time to market by learning from the first wave of early adopters. AR offers a new marketing and product paradigm for a high impact, high value customer experience. More than 1,000 AR campaigns were kicked-off last year and we expect to see many more in 2010. In this report, we profile key AR development companies, their campaigns as well as development lessons learned.

Survey of Experienced Developers

The survey of experienced developers included in the report has unearthed some information about AR implementations that you won’t be able to get anywhere else.

  • How important is it for companies to use existing AR browsers as opposed to building their own stand-alone mobile AR apps?
  • Hidden costs associated with AR app development.
  • Developer experience requirements for AR app development.
  • Timeline for development of AR apps.
  • Total cost and cost break down for developing a Webcam AR project.
  • When live video processing will be enabled on popular mobile phones? This is critical for the next stage of AR, because it will allow for apps that are responsive to what’s actually being looked at instead of just what’s expected to be in a given location.
