This year, we’ve seen the mobile market make incredible strides in technology. The iPhone, Android and Palm platforms have increased their functionality well beyond just being a phone and have added critical functions such as faster internet connectivity, video cameras, GPS and compasses. Handheld gaming devices have also converged, adding cameras and accelerometers to their devices.
Saw a very brief demo of a *reality* browser on TV last week via Brink on the Science Channel (which btw also had an excellent demo by Bill Buxton & the MS Office Labs 2019 vision--posted elsewhere on this forum).
Basically it seems to be mobile browser (served as an app) which in real time mashes-up digital content (information) and physical context---it's called Layar and seems to be live in the Netherlands.
Very, very cool stuff was curious to know if there were any thoughts or if anyone has had first hand experience with something like this.
