3D location-based apps are here: Brightkite partners with augmented reality startup, Layar

layar screenshot 3D location based apps are here: Brightkite partners with augmented reality startup, LayarBrightkite was one of my location-based services to watch this year.  Why?  Because the company can remain quiet for months on end and then reappear with a big bang, innovating in revolutionary ways rather than evolutionary steps.

Case in point:  Brightkite has partnered with Layar to add Layar’s Augmented Reality Browser to its service, moving the user interface from boring old 2D to earth-shattering 3D.  Just take a look at the video below and be wowed.  Just look through the camera on your Android phone and you’ll see where your friends are, status updates, and place reviews, all from their location.

Unbelievable.

According to VentureBeat, the Layar browser will soon be available worldwide and on the iPhone.
