Chuck Benton

Realtors need to locate property lines day in and day out, and clients invariably want to “see” the boundaries of the property at hand. BoundARyViewerTM is an innovative, easy way to see those property lines through the magic of Augmented Reality (AR)! We’ve all seen the computer generated “first down lines” in televised football games… BoundARyViewerTM uses this same technology to project publicly available property boundaries into your smart phone camera view. Simply open the app and point your camera!! Founder Chuck Benton’s helped developed early Virtual Reality systems, which lead to the development of Augmented Reality navigation systems used by the US Navy and others. Chuck now focuses on applying the technologies he developed for the military to provide practical applications for the general public.
