Apple iPhone AppStore is about to get it’s First Augmented Reality App
AcrossAir creates a very interesting Apple iPhone App. This amazing new application tells Londoners where their nearest tube station is via their iPhones video function.
When you load the app, holding it flat, all 13 lines of the London underground are displayed in coloured arrows. By tilting the phone upwards, you will see the nearest stations: what direction they are in relation to your location, how many kilometres and miles away they are and what tube lines they are on. If you continue to tilt the phone upwards, you will see stations further away, as stacked icons. Only available to Apple iPhone 3GS users.
AcrossAir is working with companies to take advantage of the Apple iPhone platform for everything from fun games to enterprise applications. Our first applications, delivering TV listings for TVGuide.co.uk and our fun game the Fruit Loons, are launching in AppStore in June 2009. Learn more: http://www.acrossair.com/

I would like to see something like this for the Washington DC Metro. This would also be a nice way to locate the many Washington DC museums.
