Dutch designers and software engineers understand the potential of mobile devices. They are creating apps that no only intersect seamlessly with our daily lives, but improve our understanding of the world around us.

Such apps offer augmented reality, which superimposes digital content or imagery on top of what you’re seeing. For example, if you aim your smartphone camera at a magazine page, poster, or other printed material, related media, such as movies, music videos, slideshows, and links suddenly appear on your screen through Layar.

Other examples include Star Walk 2, Wikitude, AR Invaders, and Anatomy 4D.
