Cross Platform Augmented Reality service aims to make the world more interesting, psychotic

If you have a penchant for seeing things which are not really there, Metaio has got you covered,.  The company has developed a Augmented Reality service which allows one to create interesting graphical objects and website links tied to geographic locations, only visible through smartphones using their software.

The software is set to be available on Windows Mobile, Android, S60 and iPhone, and integrates with social networks such as facebook and twitter, meaning friends who do not have appropriately equipped devices can still share in the fun.

"You now can turn places into your own hotspots," metaio explains on its Web site. "By leaving traces, messages or objects, you can change how you, your friends and everyone else sees the world. Whether you want to guide your friends to your favourite restaurant, point out a yet-unknown sight or add objects on your campus–it is up to you."

See the video below for the software being demoed on an iPhone in action.
