Shot in the dark, but in an Android vs iOS thread, someone posted a video of a google product that allowed you to take a tour of inside locations, and you could actually use the gyroscope/augmented reality to move your phone around and look around the place. I've been searching for a while but cant seem to find the correct terms and find the video again.

It was basically google street view, but it allowed motion control instead of tapping, and showed the inside of certain locations.

----------

The video that was posted was inside a San Fransisco restaurant that was on the ocean.

That's pretty cool! The indoor restaurant view must not be widespread, every place I've tried it didn't work. That is an impressive feature though.
