We just love surprises here at 9to5Mac, from the news that the MacBook Pro is the biggest-selling laptop on Amazon at time of writing (second-best in the UK) to the peachy-keen deals on Apple Protection there, but that’s not what this story is about — this surprise comes from the developers at Occipital who have uncovered secret augmented reality capabilities within Mobile Safari for iOS 4.2, woot!!

Occipital have found that the gyroscope inside both iPhone 4 and the latest generation iPod touch can be used to access these augmented reality features.

The developers uncovered these when developing a panoramic photo app. In a moment’s kindness, they’ve set up a demo so that anyone with the right gear (including iOS 4.2) can explore using Safari.
