Ed Parsons discusses Mobilizy’s Wikitude app for Google’s Android phone platform. The short 1-minute video gives an excellent idea of it’s potential. From the official website: “Wikitude is a mobile travel guide for the Android platform based on location-based Wikipedia content. […] The truly compelling feature is the augmented reality cam view, users may hold the phone’s camera against a spectacular mountain range and see the names and heights displayed as overlay mapped with the mountains in the camera. Users may look out of an airplane window to see what is down there. Users may walk through a city like Seville, Spain, holding the phone’s camera against a building and Wikitude tells what it is.
