Worlds First Augmented Reality Chipset – Metaio & ST-Ericsson

Metaio, the Germany-based augmented reality company, announced a deal with ST-Ericsson which will see the latter integrate a specialized AR processor into the next generation of its mobile chipsets.

Metaio says their AREngine processor will dramatically increase the speed and precision needed to run and expand the use of augmented reality tasks on mobile phones, while also being more efficient in its power usage. The notion of an augmented reality processor integrated into mobile device certainly distinguishes itself from the downloadable AR apps we have seen become popular over the last year or so, that are limited in what they can do outside of a singular, often gimmicky, task.
