SREngine Goes Public

It's been a while since we last visited one of my favorite AR application, Sein Kanemura's SREngine, and my, how it has grown!
What started as an AR browser-like image recognition based project, has now been released as a "Point&Find" like application for the iPhone. Available for free on the Japanese App Store, Eigaru, powered by SREngine, enables to look at movie posters and see associated trailers and reviews:

Now correct me if I'm wrong (I don't have an iPhone), it does look like Eigaru works by analyzing the video input, and I thought that the API does not expose such functionality. So, is Eigaru the first of its kind?

I also thought that iPhone API doesn't allow to use video-stream from the cam. Strange.

This is not an AR application (the image is not augmented), it's just image recognition...

This is correct, but we tend to bend the rules over this blog when it comes to the formal definition of AR, especially when it comes to SREngine
