As augmented reality continues to grow more advanced, real life may be becoming more like the Internet. Metaio, an augmented reality developing firm based in Germany, aims to make this a reality with their AR browser Junaio. The application allows users to see a world integrated with virtual reality, enabling them to interact with the digital aspects as they would while browsing the Internet. Despite the appeal of augmented reality, a mobile app does not seem complete if it cannot scan barcodes. So, Metaio has updated their platform so that it can now scan QR codes.
As people become more accustomed to mobile technology and its varying quarks, mobile apps that perform a single function as becoming less common. These days, apps have to cater to the myriad needs of consumers, whatever those needs may be. Given the popularity of QR codes, it seemed only logical that Metaio include a barcode scanner with their app.
