Virtual Tagging on Your iPhone (Video)

Developed by Tonchidot, a mobile application firm in Tokyo, the above demo video shows off the world’s first virtual tagging service for the iPhone: Sekai Camera, meaning “world camera” in Japanese.

It’s a prime example of the iPhone platform’s game-changing ability to push boundaries, and some foreshadowing into the bright future that awaits it.
