Just tried it.....

Impressively identified a can of lynx, but couldn't work out the BT tower.

Looks like it could be great fun - similar idea to things like the layer browser, etc.

Finally!

I've been frustrated wondering why I couldn't see the Goggles on my Hero, thanks for pointing out it's 1.6 and above.

The augemented reality doesn't look as impressive as the Layar platform.

Borderline FAIL

Only seems to work when the image contains text or barcode *and* it manages to correctly recognise it (which is hit and miss). Complete failure on any*thing* I've tried, including what I assumed to be easily recognisable shapes (cars, bicycles, telephones, cups, etc).The only thing it recognised was a (computer) keyboard.

Interesting idea, and fun to play with, but currently almost useless.
