More news on the augmented reality front – Sky Challenge is working on a new sport that will mix real life planes with computer obstacles and competitors. Players at home would be able to compete with real life pilots, flying through a virtual obstacle course that is overlaid on top of real world terrain. The real world pilots would also be able to see their virtual challengers and the computer generated obstacles. Sky Challenge hopes to make this a world-wide event, where anyone could compete from home via their computers.

These kind of games bring up questions of how to navigate in these augmented spaces. How will people in the real spaces discern what’s what? Virtual players could accidentally (or purposely) cause very real problems for the pilots.
