[OSM-talk] Augmented reality for walkers (hikers?)

As an extension to the OpenTrailView idea, I thought it might be an idea to experiment with an augmented reality app for walkers (hikers) in which OSM ways could be overlaid on a phone's camera. There appear to be a number of augmented reality apps for POIs, peak naming, etc but nothing obvious which actually overlays OSM ways on the camera.

Obviously there will be some issues with this, notably the low accuracy of GPS height data, but is anyone aware of any open source OSM AR apps for hikers, showing actual OSM ways, already out there? (Obviously don't want to duplicate effort)
