Augmented Reality Maps

Augmented reality maps take online mapping to a whole new level. The technology is fascinating and its uses are endless. The wow factor on this new technology is huge! While exciting on some levels it is also terrifying on others. There is no telling the ways in which this technology can be abused. Every promising new technology can have a flip side that is very dark indeed. This is something to explore in a later article no doubt. Until then, check out the video above and see the thing for yourself. For good or bad there no one can argue that the technology is impressive!
