    Description:(From the makers Website):

    The Layar Reality Browser shows what is around you by displaying real time digital information on top of the real world as seen through the camera of your mobile phone. This technology is called Augmented Reality. We augment the real world as seen through your mobile phone, based on your location.

    How it works:

    The idea is simple: Layar works by using a combination of the mobile phones camera, compass and GPS data to identify the users location and field of view, retrieve data based on those geographical coordinates, and overlay that data over the camera view.

    Features:

    How cool is it to launch an app, turn in a certain direction, and see a historic landmarks on the virtual screen, then learn more about it. Or see how close others Tweeps are to your vicinity, find a house or play a game. Layar Reality Browser Android App is one of the coolest ideas to hit the Android phone! Augment reality using the phones camera and location-based data to find local businesses, historical facts, Flickr photos, Tweeps, and more.
