What Is Augmented Reality?
Less like this… A little more like this…
“AR augments the real world environment with virtual information improving people’s senses and skills.” - Ronald Azuma, A Survey of Augmented Reality
For now, it’s mostly this…
AR is mostly thought of as having to do with Head-mounted Display (HMD), but three characteristics enable to include other technologies 1. Combines real and virtual objects in a real environment 2. Runs interactively in real time 3. Registered in 3-D (aligns real and virtual objects with each other)
