Clearly an escape from the real world is required.
Seriously, there are several new applications making use of TriMet’s open data, and a couple of them take an augmented reality approach. For example, you can point your camera phone at a bus stop and get an overlay of the next arrival time.
Very cool, but since the iPhone version requires the 3GS and I only have the lowly 3G, I have not yet been able to try it.

Any version for Android?
Now that Apple has passed Micro$oft in market cap, it’s officially cool to hate them now. Monopolistic pigs. :)
Scotty, from the blog post:
The junaio app works on any iPhone 3GS or Android phone, and allows all kinds of agencies to make their datasets augmented-reality friendly.
So yeah, Android is a go.
