The 'Augmented Window,' designed by Thierry Fournier, enhances the view from the top of the Pompidou in Paris. The touch screen is attached to a real-time video camera that looks out over the city. Viewers can use the screen to zoom in on hotspots and learn more about the city.

What I particularly like about the 'Augmented Window' by Thierry Fournier is the concept is relatively simple and uses technology that is already widely accepted, that is, touch screens and video cameras. However, the final product is something that's really innovative and is certain to be seen in other location over the coming years.

The 'Augmented Window' optimizes the viewers experience in a remarkable manner. With the 'Augmented Window' the future feels like it's on our doorstep.
