    Augmented reality apps?

    I'm still trying to find cool apps for my HTC Desire & so far I'm kinda struggling a little, I've got Layar but it's a bit boring after a while.
    I seem to recall a game where you shoot helicopters that are overlaid onto your camera output but I'm not sure if that was for the iPhone?

    Anyway...has anyone got any good suggestions for Android?

    Thanks folks!

    Rob

    There was a video for a satnav one that was augmented turn by turn, so it showed the road (feed from camera) and laid the directions on top

    SpecTrek? Hold the phone flat to see a map (real map) with ghosts marked on them. Hold it up to use the camera to catch them

    Erm, I don't think it does, does it? I thought the best it could do was lay the line over the top of the satellite view? Not augmented reality, through the camera view?

    I gotta be honest with you, most augmented reality apps probably aren't going to be much cop in your living room...
