Augmented Nintendo

A video. A rumor is circulating (here, via digg) that the upcoming Nintendo Revolution - that is, the upcomding Nintendo Wii - will implement an Augmented Reality UI, which would be extremely cool. Whether the rumor is true or not, it gives us an idea for what they are driving at with the new controller. And it reminds us again, Nintendo is not to be underestimated.

What the heck is augmented reality? Video below.

Before you say "impossible!" remember that you can already get consumer augmented reality software today with webcams. (Remember the popular YouTube Breakup video that circulated last month, which used Logitec's augmented reality software. Here is a demo from Neven Vision.)

Update: more thoughts on Friday
