We’ve seen this before, but the AR business cards are really making some interesting steps forwards. The link has the video, which shows the interaction of being able to call the person directly from the AR. I like this demo because it is showing the possible adoption of video/mics built into most computers these days and combining your social graph (your social media footprint) with platforms outside of the computer environment.

Speaking of mobile phones, Americans no longer use them predominately to talk…52 percent of Americans use mobile for non-voice activities: Study. Which is pretty crazy to think about. I think we’ve passed the tipping point for mobile devices, and we should really start to think of mobile as another communication platform. Much like we think of the internet as a platform, we should think about how to weave mobile into our communication efforts as another main 360 connection point (and not just apps, but how people connect to data/communication on the go).
