What is Augmented Reality?

Definition and meaning of Augmented Reality:

Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that overlays digital information on top of the camera image in real-time.

AR combines digital and real worlds through your camera phone or special glasses, letting you see things that aren’t there.

Augmented reality slowly but surely is becoming an essential part of our lives. It can help you find your way around the city, provide information about products in a store, and much more. The potential for AR is pretty much limitless.
