A few months ago, I built as a proof of concept a little demo that shows
how putting together some of the existing and in-progress Web APIs, you
can build a simple augmented reality Web app that fully runs in the

I have meant to blog about it or to post it to this list in a while, but
have failed to do so. Having been chided about it by a few people, I
thought I would send a short announcement on it now, in case this of
interest to this group.

The code is available at:
and can be run as the full experience in the opera mobile browser on
android (version >=12):

On other browsers (where access to the camera feed via getUserMedia
isn't available yet), you should still get a fairly decent fallback
(although also likely some interoperability issues as far as how compas
angles are calculated in other browsers).

It's not polished in any way, and I've used it more as a proof of
concept than anything else, but I believe it shows how Web technologies
can be used to make augmented reality on mobile a feature among others,
built upon open data.
