CSR’s Sirf Technologies division and WifiSLAM claim to have figured out how to map indoor locations when you’re walking with your mobile phone inside a building. I really hope that we get to see this work in practice (with good precision) in 2013. 

Having the ability to get to less than a meter precision inside a building is a very powerful technology breakthrough that would enable many more workflows and usecases. Currently GPS/Wifi is not precice enough for many workflows (only getting to around 3 meters at best).
