Science and sci-fi geeks come out of the government closet!
Having been a geek for longer than I can remember, NOT at all certain that this is where I want to go but suspect I won’t have MUCH choice…
From the St. Louis Post Dispatch
The possibilities for melding the virtual and actual worlds have just started to become apparent. The first phones with Google’s Android operating system, which enables augmented reality, have come out in the past year. The iPhone became augmented-reality-friendly with the compass that debuted in June on the iPhone 3GS. Apple also recently joined Google in making it possible for software developers to overlay images on the phone’s camera view.
As cell phones get even smarter and GPS and wireless networks improve, we may soon be spending more time in a virtually enhanced world, using information gathered from the Internet to inform everything from eating to playing video games.

Now if they can just get it working on my glasses.
Yeah, I’m waiting for the glasses app, too – I can never recognize people or remember names, so whenever I can get that overlay right in front of my eyes, I’ll have a lot fewer awkward moments!
Yep…I am all for that! 🙂
