This ranks as uber cool. View 3D architectural models using a webcam and Google Earth - Basically, you download the free software, print a one page logo, select a model, and hold the logo up to your webcam and presto magico - you can tour a well designed 3D model in the palm of your hand.

I will agree that this is uber cool. Augmented Reality.... nothing like holding the Eiffel Tower in ones hands.

Yes, but the applications for cartography and GIS are exciting.

So has anyone actually tried this yet? It almost sounds too good to be true.
