WorkSnug: Augmented Reality for Coffee Shop Web Workers

Walking down the street, looking for a place to open your laptop and work? Before you commit to buying a cup of coffee at the first spot you come across, maybe you’d like a little Augmented Reality tour of the closest options and reviews of their power outlet, noise level and coffee quality! Augmented Reality (AR) applications place layers of data on top of our view of the physical world and WorkSnug has built an AR app just for coffee shop web workers.

The app isn’t available yet but is coming to the iPhone, presumably when Apple offers the full support for AR that countless developers are waiting for. WorkSnug seems very handy and it’s a good example of a one-off AR app that could serve people well outside the full AR platforms like Layar and Wikitude – but the simple fact of the matter is that it’s just plain cool.
