Augmented Reality

The group, part of MIT’s Media Lab, designed a device that gathers data on the environment around the user, searches for information using the Internet as a data store, aggregates the results and presents it back to the user via a display. Think of it as a meta-data system for real life.

From Fast Company. My term for this whole field has been Augmented Reality… location awareness + wireless data streaming = a completely “marked up” world.
