London Museum Releases Cool Augmented Reality App
By Ryan Deal posted May 25, 2010, 10:30 am | 0
The Museum of London has released a new augmented reality iPhone app that allows tourists and residents alike to browse historical photographs in different parts of the city. Best part is… it’s free.

The iPhone app, Streetmuseum takes you to different locations around the city using maps and GPS. Once you’ve arrived at a spot, you can click the “3D View” button and the app will lay an appropriate historical photo over the live feed of the real world you are viewing. What a great idea for a travel app. Now, my only question… When will this be available for major U.S. cities?
