Layar Augmented Reality App Out For iPhone, and it’s Free. And Awesome.

I’ve been waiting for the Layar augmented reality browser (iTunes link) for a long time, ever since I read about it on other platforms (like Android), and saw it demoed at Gnomedex 9 (thanks Beth Goza! :-) ) Note that Layar (and other augmented reality apps) only works with the iPhone 3GS, and not earlier models, because it requires the compass in the 3GS to know which direction it’s pointing.

The coolest thing I’ve seen in Layar in my first few minutes of playing with it is the number of data layers you can overlay on your reality – Wikipedia, Panoramio, Flickr, Brightkite (which returned no data for me) and a whole lot more.

I’ll need more time to play with it, but so far, Layar is the augmented reality iPhone app to beat. And best if all, it’s free.
