While we believe Microsoft themselves will enable the APIs to access the camera for third party apps, rooting the device as seen days ago allows developers to do it now. In turn, so called augmented reality apps are possible, if one can sideload an app written in native code on their device.
In the case above, Clarity Consulting threw together this demo app written Silverlight to show off the potential Windows Phone 7 and AR can have together.
Lets hope that Microsoft, busy as they are, can get around to delivering the goods sooner than later. Otherwise, rooted devices, here we come! Seriously, I need some Star Wars Falcon Gunner nao.
