New Augmented Reality App for Librarians


This will definitely come in handy, though it may reveal exactly how badly a library’s books are shelved!  Miami University researchers have created an Android app called ShelvAR that quickly identifies a bookshelf’s books, which books are misshelved, and the fastest way to shelve them.  Just hold your tablet or smartphone camera in front of the configured spine tags and watch the augmented reality magic happen. The kinks will be worked out and the final app should be released next spring. Think of the possibilities!
