I was always a bit thrown by the term "augmented reality." A brief glimpse at the definition in Wikipedia clears the terminology up.
"Augmented reality (AR) is a field of computer research which deals with the combination of real-world and computer-generated data (virtual reality), where computer graphics objects are blended into real footage in real time."
In our video a new application, TwittARound, still in beta and may soon be available in the iPhone app store which encorporates "augmented reality" and Twitter.
GPS, compass and camera show where Tweets are coming from. You can literay see those Tweets coming at you!
