Yet another post about maps - please indulge me. I came across two German guys, Max Braun and Rafael Spring, who - as Bruce Sterling puts it - "are setting new records for geolocative geekdom". Imagine your mobile phone's camera overlaid with Google Earth so that you could see 'reality' and data about distances to hospitals etc embedded in the image. It's called Enkin and it's only in prototype but I'm ready to join the queue for the first mobile phone that's got it.
As the nerds would say: The Future is Awesome.
