Augmented Reality for the Blind

Often, when we talk about augmented reality, we think of ways to augment our reality. The following application for the G1 phone is a noble idea - augment the reality of those experiencing the world in a different way than most of us. Translating shapes and colors into pitch and volume, the application provides (some) information usually not accessible to the blind.

More information (more than you could care for) can be found here. I think this is a great idea, but the implementation could get better. How would you improve the life of others using AR?
