Very interesting idea. Imagine a history course - take a field trip to a historic site, and pan the phone around to have relevant information overlaid on the phone. What about environmental science or nursing?
I think augmented reality will be huge in education!
An iPhone version of the augmented reality Argon browser, which lets users scan places and objects with the phone’s video camera and see Web content overlaid on the screen, is now available.
An Argon user standing in a city park can pan the iPhone video camera and see overlays of geo-tagged Flickr images, Twitter posts and other Web content that is relevant to whatever is being viewed, including information about businesses and products.
