Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is the use of technology and visual aids to superimpose information on the world we see. Images and sounds are superimposed over what the user sees and hears. Picture the "Minority Report" or "Iron Man" style of interactivity. This is rather different from virtual reality. Virtual reality means computer-generated environments for you to interact with, and be immersed in. However, augmented reality (also known as AR), adds to the reality you would ordinarily see rather than replacing it.
