The iPhone gets augmented reality vision.

By combining a smartphone's camera, GPS, and net connection Sekai allows social tagging, or "Air Tagging" as Tonchidot describes it, of the real world through the mobile screen.

Using the phone's built-in GPS, Sekai calculates your position. The viewfinder for the camera then displays location-specific information graphically on top of your real-world view.
Yeah, that's just crazy. Wait for the headset VR-sunglasses model.
