Integration Next - Google Android's Compass

After my last post on this topic, I was reading on Google IO & here is a Google Android demo that shows exactly what I was talking about.

The compass feature actually overlays a real image stitched to give a 3D view impression, & moves as the phone is moved.

While I did not know about this feature in Android while writing my earlier post on this subject, I am pleasantly surprised (& a little taken aback) at the timing.

Either this is a weird coincidence / fluke or I am really good at seeing the future ;-). What do you think?
