Augmented Reality: Mobile as an all-devouring third wave of context

Bruce Sterling published the foreword of his new book “The Insider’s Guide to Mobile” by Raimo van der Klein, CEO of Layar the company developing the augmented reality browser also named layar.
He speaks about 3 years of development of the AR browser.

from the foreword:

Basically now we have entered the third wave of mobile. First was Communication, second was Content and now the third is Context. We are barely scratching the surface of this third wave. Context is restructuring mobile services so, that it utilises contextual datapoints to optimize the service experience for the users. Contextual datapoints are for example location, proximity to objects, proximity to friends, the user’s viewing angle, actual time, your direct surroundings and much more.
