Need Another Reason to Collect the 2009 Topps Legends of the Game Cards???

According to this article from Symbian Developers Journal, Topps and a company called GetFugu, Inc, are joining forces, using GetFugu's "See It, Say It, Find It, Get It" vision, voice and location recognition services to enhance the "Legends of the Game" cards in 2009 Topps Baseball Series 1, Series 2 and Updates and Highlights.

Utilizing GetFugu's image recognition service, baseball fans who use their mobile device to capture an image of one of the enhanced cards will get additional information from the web relevant to that card. GetFugu's application will send the individual to the player's Wikipedia page, to the Topps' online store or to Topps on to purchase classic Topps products.

If this works with the Legends cards, who knows what will happen in 2010? And you thought those Legends cards were just made to utilize Topps' license with CMG players...

I don't really see the point. I can look up something on Wikipedia or eBay myself.
