iType2Go Pro — $1.99 app lets you use augmented reality to text as you walk

iType2Go Pro has just received an annual Pogie Award, meaning that it's one of New York Times columnist David Pogue's top picks for the best technology of 2009. And it's definitely a clever idea: If you're the kind of person who sends text messages while you're walking, the iPhone uses the camera to display what's in front of you and the text that you're typing appears superimposed. You can direct that your message be sent as a text message, e-mail message, Facebook update, or Twitter update. It works in either vertical or landscape mode.
