<<Imagine you're a tourist and you arrive at this place and you want to know more about it,” said (Google Product Manager Hartmut) Neven on a visit to the Santa Monica pier in Los Angeles the show off the technology. “All you will have to do is take a picture of the sign. We send the information up to the serverand we recognize this as the Santa Monica pier. The idea is you see something that interests you, you whip out your camera phone, take a picture of the object of interest, and this will trigger a Google search.>>

I remember seeing augmented reality on the droid does page as well, but it may have disappeared when it actually came out

If I'm not mistaken, Nokia has a similar app. You might find it under the beta apps website.
