Facebook Places nu live in Nederland.

maart 20, 2011

Facebook lanceerde enkele maanden geleden een nieuwe service waarbij gebruikers met hun mobiele telefoon kunnen “inchecken” bij plaatsen die zij bezoeken. Alleen het was niet beschikbaar in Nederland. Na lang wachten kunnen we sinds dit weekend in Nederland ook gebruik maken van deze service waarbij je vrienden op Facebook kunnen zien waar je bent.

Zo werkt het:

Stap 1: Start je Facebook app op je telefoon op en klik op het icoontje “Check in”.

Stap 2: Zoek een plaats waar je in kunt checken of voeg er zelf eentje toe.

In het voorbeeld hieronder heb ik er Facebook place aangemaakt voor een zoekmachine project dat ik heb opgezet voor mijn kids.

Stap 3: Nu inchecken en iedereen in je ‘timeline’ kan zien waar je bent.


Geduchte concurrent “FourSquare” pioniert al een aantal jaar met een “incheck service” waarbij tevens zogenaamde badges kunnen worden verkregen en een bepaalde status kan worden behaald. Ook kun je op Foursquare aanbiedingen in de buurt vinden en nog veel meer. Vooralsnog heeft Facebook nog geen commercieel model als Foursquare laten zien maar dat zal er ongetwijfeld aan komen.


Ouderwets goede service bij Autobedrijf Snijders in Amsterdam

december 2, 2010

Dit is nu al de vierde keer dat ik aanklop bij Autobedrijf Snijders in Amsterdam om mijn Saab 93 te repareren. Van een gek rateltje onder de motorkap tot een stuk onderspoiler dat kapot is tot nu dan een bijna kapot gevroren ruitensproeier. Altijd hebben deze heren mij super goed geholpen! Momenteel zit ik zelfs te werken en bloggen in hun kantoortje omdat het te koud is in e showroom!

Super goed!



World premier: Walt Disney launches the first augmented reality outdoor campaign.

mei 17, 2010

The Gods have a plan for you! To announce the premiere of the latest box office hit ‘Prince of Persia The sands of time’, which will be in cinemas on the 19th of May, Walt Disney launches the worlds first augmented reality outdoor campaign. Lucky users of Android- and iPhones who are standing near one of the outdoor filmposters can play the movie trailer and play an augmented reality game by using their Layar browser. They can collect 50 Movie Minute value points as a reward for playing the game.

Verslag: 3D Augmented Reality Flashmob

Beatles TABworldmedia ARflashmob Augmented Reality

Vandaag was het zover. Na weken van voorbereiden was de 3D Augmented Reality Flashmob een feit. Een groep van een kleine honderd mensen gewapend met Android- en iPhones verzamelden zich om 14.00 uur exact bij het Nationaal Monument op de Dam. Om klokslag 14.00 uur kregen de deelnemers aan de eerste 3D Augmented Reality Flashmob de laatste instructies van de organisatoren, Sander Veenhof en TAB Worldmedia. Er werd een grote poster met een QR code midden op het plein gelegd en mensen kregen flyers met de instructies uitgedeeld.

The first Augmented Reality Flashmob in the world. (SATURDAY 24th April)

april 23, 2010

Imagine the Dam Square in Amsterdam filled with statues and odd characters and only you can see them trough the camera of Android- and iPhone. Saturday the 24th of April this is going to be the case.  At exactly 14.00 hours the National Monument on the Dam Square will be surrounded with digital 3D statues that can be viewed in Augmented Reality with the Layar app. The rumour is that even the iconic Beatles will be there crossing the street like in the famous picture on the Abbey road.

Sander Veenhof is the creator behind this amazing idea. Veenhof says: “Every square in every major city in the world knows the ‘human statue’ phenomenon. On the Dam Square in Amsterdam Darth Vader, Superman, a Gladiator and some undecipherable sort of gothic characters colour the scene.“ But this Saturday it will be a whole other sight, at exactly 14.00 hours a big group of people will hold their Androids and iPhones in the air, turn on their Layar browser and take screenshots of the amazing 3D characters that we will place in Augmented Reality on the Dam Square. You can actually walk around them to look at them from all angles by just using your phone and the Layar browser. We are really looking forward to see the faces of those who have no clue of what’s going on.

Remco Vroom over augmented reality

maart 20, 2010

Bij TAB Worldmedia hebben ze het maar druk. Dinsdag presenteren ze bij iMMovator, woensdag middag bij de Android Experience en woensdag avond ook nog eens bij het Derde Nederlands MediaNetwerk Event. En dat allemaal dankzij Augmented Reality. Grijpen wij de telefoon en bellen wij Remco Vroom van TAB Worldmedia.

Dag Remco, hoe is het met je? Druk?
‘Ha Bas, ja natuurlijk maar dat is geen doel op zich. We hebben een aantal intensieve dagen achter en voor de boeg maar dat hoort erbij als je probeert een nieuwe dienst in de markt te zetten. Wij zijn nu pas zes weken bezig maar we hebben toch al heel wat voor elkaar gekregen.’
