Blaise Aguera y Arcas architect of Seadragon, and the co-creator of Photosynth demos new augmented-reality mapping technology as part of Bing maps. It’s pretty impressive layering user generated content such as photography and real-time video into maps allowing a user to flip through historical and current views.

I can’t remember the last time I’ve been seriously impressed by the use of flash, well I can, it was HP’s Beetle Buggin’ promotion, but the Smartgrid | Augmented Reality site from GE has just blown me away. Apparently this technology has been around for a while but it’s the first time I’ve come across it. It’s nice to see that the FLARToolKit source code’s been made available as well. Seriously impressive!
