The iTacitus project is one being carried out in the European Union that essentially uses augmented reality to create mobile phone time machines that show a given location as it appeared centuries ago.

The iTacitus program's augmented reality recovers historic photographs and videos, allowing mobile phone users to simultaneously visit any given site in the past and the present.
