Sekai Camera for Android - Still Looks Terrible

Once again Techcrunch (or rather MobileCrunch) has an exclusive on Tonchidot's Sekai Camera (here's last time). This time, the news are coming from an Android event held by Nikkei, apparently Japan's leading business newspaper, where the first version of Sekai Camera for Google's Android was exposed. Unlike the iPhone version, this one utilizes the built-in compass to narrow the number of items displayed on the screen. The result is still far from impressive

Yes, I know this is only the first version, and things will look better when the application is released. However, I still suspect that without any image recognition, the usefulness of Sekai camera will be limited to the outdoors (where it would compete with Wikitude), whilst it would need a way to filter spam in indoors environments.
