Wow, this is a very cutting-edge
new innovation from ING Netherlands. My android cellphone shows me the available ATMs in my sight, by pointing the camera of the phone to any direction. ATM markers are added to the actual camera image, so I know which way to go.
The concept of processing the real environment image and react somehow is there since some MIT guys introduced
Sixth Sense. This is a mini computer appliance that can see what you see and even project a GUI to any surface to show additional information related to the real world image. It is like you check
a book in your favorite bookstore and the device projects on it the amazon rating of the book (downloaded from the web).
Interesting technology indeed.
