Augmented reality (AR) is an emerging technology that has been popping up on a number of mobile device platforms lately. If augmented reality is new to you, it is a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment where elements are merged with or augmented by a virtual or computer imagery. Wikitude is one of the more popular iPhone applications that leverages augmented reality to point out Wikipedia related points or interested based on your GPS location. AR Drone is an interesting application of augmented reality as it is a helipad that is controlled via your iPhone.
