I would definitely like that ability for, like Angie said, landmarks and tourist hotspots, as well as maybe signs? Like the “Welcome to ______” signs. Maybe they could link to info about the town and what’s going on there that day?

A fusion of GPS and Wikitravels
Imagine strolling about an unknown city, snapping away pictures of landmarks. Sometimes curiosity is piqued and one wants to know more about that building or that mountain. Wouldn’it be practical to point at it with a device, scan it and info pop up about the history, characteristics of the object/landmark scanned?
