Submission + - "Terminator Vision" is here for the iPhone (bbc.co.uk)

musefrog writes: The BBC is reporting that so-called Augmented Reality has arrived — in the UK at least.

From the article:
"Via the video function of a mobile phone's camera it is now possible to combine a regular pictorial view with added data from the internet just as the fictional Terminator was able to overlay its view of the world with vital information about its surroundings. For example, UK-firm Acrossair has launched an application for the iPhone which allows Londoners to find their nearest tube station using their iPhone."

The page features an impressive video demonstrating AR in action.
