Augmented Reality on mobile platform

Just came across this wonderful site “Layar“. Layar is augmented reality application on your mobile phone which shows what is around you by displaying real time digital information on top of reality though the camera of your mobile phone. Content Layers are the equivalent of web pages in normal browsers. A layer is the digital view that is added to the camera view. Guess if this will be possible on future versions of flash on mobile devices. Currently they work on IPhone, Symbian and Android platforms.

Adrian Ludwig previews Adobe Flash Player 10.1 on Google’s Nexus One. Nexus runs Android natively. Nexus is designed by HTC, built on QUALCOMM’s Snapdragon chipset. A good example of active participation by the open screen project members.
