When is un-augmented reality a better choice?

From what I can see, this is a great example of what augmented reality should NOT be. Endlessly clicking on low-rez photos of a place that you are already in. Comes to us via http://www.hci.uniovi.es/

Now, with all due respects to the video and the application, (Vadinia) the video depicts a nightmare augmented reality. Navigating through real space while tied to a handheld device. This would probably be better illustrated within a museum or other controlled area, with the point being – where does the user begin absorbing information for herself? When does the user begin to form her own impressions based on classroom learing? Can this type of information input – output be done through the interface? I welcome your comments and discussion….
