Cool Software

Basically we all need this stuff available on the heads-up displays of our wearable computers:

An image-recognition system developed by European researchers can hyperlink reality. It’s true. The MOBVIS system can recognise individual buildings in a photo you take with your camera-phone. Then it can apply icons that hyperlink to information about the building. Simply by looking at a picture, the system knows where you are and can tell what you are looking at.

If nothing else, I want this stuff in museums.
