110 Stories: Augmented Reality Twin Towers iPhone App

There are a lot of different efforts being put forth for the upcoming 10th anniversary of September 11th. The best one I’ve seen so far is called “110 Stories” which is a personal vision and project of Brian August. He wants to build an app that will recreate the Trade Towers through three principles – orient, augment and comment. You activate the app on your iPhone and you’ll be guided towards the World Trade Center site. Once properly oriented the augmented reality kicks in and renders the silhouette of the towers. You then snap a picture, fine tune the image, add a personal story and submit it to  The project is still in the fundraising stage at and he just reached his initial funding goal but we all know when it comes to app development you can always use a little extra so please go and donate (even a $1) to get this app built in time for the tenth anniversary.
