In 2011 we posted a report titled "Apple working on a Sophisticated Infrared System for iOS Cameras." In that report we pointed to Apple's patent application providing a specific example regarding infrared technology's use in a museum scenario The museum would be set up with an infrared transmitter so that when visitors with an iPhone would approach a painting or artifact, a special app on the iPhone would be able to receive information about the piece in the form of a photo, a video, some simple background specifics or an audio track that could act as your personal museum guide. Today's report provides you with 3 museum specific patent figures. One is from Apple and two are from a new patent application from Google. What's interesting about Google's invention is that it replaces infrared with beacon technology. It's obvious that Apple has likewise shifted gears in respect to this new technology. Today's report briefly touches on Google's latest patent application while providing you with a few interesting twists that you might find informative as the war between iOS and Android on indoor location services gets ready to explode.
