Get London Reading

Now this is pretty cool. An augmented reality app for your iphone that provides a potted literary guide to London:

The app for the Get London Reading Campaign, run by the Booktrust, comes with augmented reality, available on just a handful of iPhone offerings.“The augmented reality application is beautifully simple, yet inspiring,” KentLyons said in announcing Get London Reading. “Hold up your iPhone on any London street and a floating book cover will appear of any novels that are based, or mention in the area you are in. For instance, if you are standing on Baker Street, any number of the iconic Arthur Conan Doyles’ Sherlock Holmes titles will appear on the street view.“
