New Tools Update: AR Coming to iPhone App Store in September

In my post on augmented reality on Friday, I mentioned that one of the hurdles for AR was that Apple had not yet enabled the API necessary for it to work, and speculated that that was likely to change in the near future. And lo, right as I was writing that, it was announced that Apple would change this policy with the release of iPhone OS 3.1 in September - though because it makes use of the compass, these apps won't be coming to those of us with the lowly old iPhone 3G. So those of you lucky enough to have a new iPhone should keep an eye out when September rolls around.
