Augmented Reality

http://gizmodo.com/5320604/half+amazing-half+terrifying-concept-app-combines-facial-recognition-with-augmented-reality



Facial recognition - I have the feeling that this could actually spring out of HTML5 - having seen this demo.

The ability to track a body, object, building in a video or live feed from the camera at the back of an iPhone for example has already been shown -

and the ability to overlay on top of that is just coming to fruition-

- from needing to find the nearest tube stations (add app)
- to a more Enkin style app

Seems DoCoMo in Japan is doing Augmented Reality (AR) testing - http://www.macworld.co.uk/business/news/index.cfm?RSS&NewsID=26691
