'm sort of fascinated with the idea of augmented-reality gaming, video games that blend the real world with the fictional one in real-time. Here's a look at Ghostwire which has players using their DSi to hunt their surroundings for ghosts and then try to help them. I love the idea and the execution looks pretty cool, though it would be nice if they used animated ghosts as opposed to static images.
