iPhone Berlin Wall

Marc Gardeya, "possibly the only person in the world whose life has been more affected by the resurrection of the Berlin Wall than its fall", created an augmented reality program that recreated the Berlin Wall. "The software uses images and GPS satellite data in order to determine a person's location and to provide information or render images of the portions of the Berlin Wall that used to stand at that location" (Spiegel Online, 2010), combining the real and the virtual.
