This article makes it sound like Qualcomm invented Augmented Reality. AR has been around for many decades and other company offerings abound. That said, the information here is valuable. For one, it is refreshing to see the SDK available at no charge. Secondly, the awards are the kind of thing that will help jump-start a technology that has been just waiting for the hardware to become small and powerful enough for what is a very computer intensive genre especially combined with Computer Vision (CV). Readers should not pigeon-hole AR into CV only however. Augmented means not only graphical overlay, but includes other type of media and interaction to enhance the user experience.
