Must see presentations #4: Blaise Aguera y Arcas: Bing’s augmented-reality maps

By William Bakker | 03.16.10 | 3 Comments

I saw Blaise’s first Photosync presentation at Web 2.0 in 2006 and was utterly impressed. He’s now working on Bing maps. This explains why Bing Maps is getting better and better and better.

His presentation at TED recently is a must see.It shows how Bing (and Google) Maps have become so much more than simple mapping tools. And the innovation will continue relentlessly. Let your imagination go wild after watching this presentation. What will Google and/or Bing Maps look like 5 years from now?

    That is amazing…and yet kind of creepy too!

    Absolutely flabbergasting. Great stuff. Thanks for sharing.
    Something really useful coming out of the arms race between Google and Microsoft?!

    Google maps have been the most helpful tool for me when travelling (at least when it comes to Europe and North America). But I am very impressed with what Bing is doing, especially the video component. I must find a way to use it creatively for something – if it's available to anyone that is – but do I need a 4G network? :-(
