Apple To Allow Augmented Reality Apps In September With OS 3.1

According to the LA Times, Apple will finally be allowing applications like Layar and TwittaRound that use the 3GS’s combination of digital compass, live video and internet connection to superimpose a layer of content over the real world, thereby “augmenting” our reality (hence the term). Sources allegedly indicate that Apple will be releasing iPhone OS 3.1 in September, which will add the ability to make apps like these possible.
