Augmented Reality: The Next in Mobile User Experience

“Think of Augmented Reality as half virtual and half real. It takes existing physical spaces and supplements or “augments” them with information, objects, actions or interactions.”

Some applications include:

  1. Location based Restaurant finder with reviews
  2. Location based Travel points of interest
  3. Virtual pet for the iPhone
  4. Public transportation schedule and station finder
  5. Virtual objects you can interact with in the real world

Look at the videos to see great examples:
