AAQR: Wikitude Enhanced Reality Browser

Wikitude started off as just a web browser, but it evolved into much more... a competitor to Layar, the "augmented reality" browser.

Consider the picture on the right. While looking through your phone's camera, you see the various icons OVERLAID on top of whatever you see. In the picture, the guy was looking for coffee.

Pretty cool, eh? This is not a joke. By using your phone's GPS, Camera, AND orientation sensor, you indeed can add to your reality.

And it's free.
