Touchable Holography

Above is the next evolution of augmented reality (AR)...actually augmented reality sensory enabled (ARSE - *grin*) - the video explains it all! The simpler stuff we're seeing out there is personified by these types of applications; Urbanspoon released this iPhone app - fully leveraging the mobile devices geo/osc layering capabilities to augment graphical restaurant location and related data on present reality view and positioning - check out the news article - loving it ;) Interesting one is Wikitude mentioned in the article - augments Wikipedia information over the realtime image rendered on the iPhone. These are all idea-based releases of the capabilities but imagine the application of it for government service delivery enhancement or emergency services or, the one I like, travel & tourism...if only everyone had an iPhone :)
