Wikitude Drive - Augmented Reality GPS Navigation

Check out this video from German made Wikitude. They just released the Android version of Wikitude Drive, an augmented reality GPS navigation system for GPS enabled smartphones. It was just launced in Austria, Germany and Switzerland but other countries are to follow.

If you’ve never heard of this before - it works by using the camera on the back of your smartphone and overlaying driving instructions on this live video feed. So instead of looking at a map you’re seeing the real world.

Is this really useful we’re not sure but it does look entertaining. What do you think?
