Get your cellphone with location-based AR services

Students from my alma mater put together a promising prototype to show how augmented reality works in conjunction with the Android API (you know, that google cellphone thing). Their location-based tool might let you augment your handheld-video-view with city annotations, road marks, waypoints and lets you find your favorite apple store or to pinpoint your pals in the city’s districts. Well, once its done and manufacturers put all accelerometers, GPS sensors, etc. in their gadgets. Way too early to grab it and early enough to already cry about the long waiting period we have to withstand. But again we see well documented what’s coming up next with AR and what is still missing. Galileooooooo!!
