MegaReader adds see-through augmented reality background | Never walk into a fountain again.

ScreenClip(5)MegaReader adds see-through augmented reality background | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics:
"Trouble reading on your iPhone without walking into things? E-book app MegaReader may have you covered. It’s just added a “heads up display” feature, which uses the camera on camera-equipped iPhones (and presumably the iPod Touch 4; earlier Touch owners would be out of luck) to superimpose the text of what you’re reading over a view of what’s in front of you."

Awesome technology that isn't quite there yet. I hope my next e-reader has a front-facing camera so I can play with this technology. No more walking into fountains! (check your YouTube)
