I've actually seen these before as I'm researching the use of AR (Augmented Reality) for mobile learning. There is a real interest in this kind of stuff. See e.g.

http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/Museum ... index.html

http://phillyhistory.org/i/ (for iPhone)

And you can overlay photo's on Google Streetview using HistoryPin: http://www.historypin.com/

Those WWII ones are really something else though..... :shock:

As an international playboy and well know after dinner racontuer...I have to visit, among other great cities of the world, Paris and Berlin on an irregular basis (regular not...remember I said a playboy) and I have seen these people walking about.
I thought they were real....and now I know they are not...Still this explains why Adolf always ignored me on that bridge...I just thought he was being arrogant.
