Bing Maps Augmented Reality
Looks like Bing may be getting ahead of Google maps a bit. They are introducing a street-view type interface with 3D understanding of the surroundings, which enables very smooth transitions. It also incorporates crowd-sourced imagery from flikr.
To me, one of the coolest features is that it works indoors and can incorporate live video for a tele-presense or augmented-reality features. The astronomy feature is another super cool innovation.
