Augmented reality is all kinds of awesome, especially when it's used for something practical. And the upcoming Commonwealth bank Real Estate iPhone app looks like it will be extremely practical for anyone in the property market.
The app pulls data from realestate.com.au and rpdata.com, in order to give you up to the date information on properties around the country.
By pointing your iPhone's camera at a property, the app will give you information about past sales history, current property listings and recent sales, nicely overlaid over the property you're interested in. You can also drop back into a "bird's eye view" to see information on properties that match your "dream home" description.
The app is apparently "coming soon" to the app store, although CBA promises video of it working next week. [Commbank]
