New App Makes Using A GPS A Bit Safer
Wikitude is a new app that allows users to reap the benefits of a GPS on their phone, while still keeping an eye on the road. Ordinarily, when you glance to see what direction you are going, you take your eyes off the road. With Wikitude, your cell phone’s camera is used to stream live video of the road ahead while keeping up-to-the minute with where to turn and when.
A really neat feature on Wikitude is that it can search surrounding areas for geo-referenced content using the camera and the device’s sensors. The objects’ information is displayed in the cam right where the real object is located.
