Earlier this year we profiled an amazing concept device that would detail real-time data for objects framed within its view screen. Now the incredible pace of accelerating technology has made this device a reality in the form of the Sekai Camera (or "world camera" in Japanese) on the iPhone. Developed by Tokyo-based Tonchidot, the software allows users to geotag any real world location with helpful information for other users of the software traveling to those areas.
By simply using Sekai Camera on your iPhone while in a tagged location, various bits of information will show up on your screen while viewing the location through the camera lens. The vast possible uses for this software boggle the mind. No release date or price have been announced, but in the meantime you can see the software in action here.
