Augmented reality


Augmented Reality is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are "augmented" by computer-generated input. This refers to representations that use virtual details to supplement and augment the real world. The inte­gration of cameras into mobile techno­logy such as smart­phones or tablets has brought about considerable advances in Augmented Reality, as objects such as text, graphics or images can be directly embedded into the image of the real environment captured by the camera. Advertising, games and navigation systems are common areas of application of this technology.
