Augmented Reality for Stocktake!

Move over barcode readers and fancy RFID!!

There is now an Awesome Augmented Reality App that Could Save Librarians Hours. This exciting new app uses the Android’s camera to “read” a bookshelf, and with an Augmented Reality overlay, quickly flags those books that are misplaced. It will also point to the correct place on the bookshelf so the book can easily be re-shelved correctly. It will be demonstrated at the Association of College and Research Libraries 2011 – and  may be hinting at the future of library resource organisation.

Yes, school libraries WILL have books for a long time to come! I would love to see this application in action.
