One of the new buzzwords in applications for mobile phones floating around is augmented reality. This type of app takes an image seen live form the phones camera and overlays it with directions or other data as an example.
A slick new augmented reality app for the Android platform has surfaced called Augmented Traffic Views. The app overlays data on top of live camera view including images from traffic cams and other data. The app will even pop images up from other cameras along the route you are driving.
The only city covered by the app right now is Toronto and we don’t know when the app will be offered to the public. What we do know is that the app is very cool and looks like one of the more useful augmented reality apps out there.[via BGR]
