Now that's what I call "augmented reality!"

I tend to look for and use practical apps on the iPhone; think sports scores, financial markets data and news. All Tech contributor and editor Eyder Peralta has other priorities.

This morning he turned to me and started talking through the animated mouth of a pink bunny. This was my introduction to the MouthOff iPhone app.

While everyone seems to be talking about using "augmented reality" to interpret the world around them, I like the idea of using augmented reality to change how the world looks at me.
