The value of Augmented Reality
Augmented reality is about placing digital information into the real world in the right context. AR has you look at the world through a device like a smartphone, tablet, or smart glasses. This device recognizes what you’re looking at and then places a digital addition on top of what you see, called an augmentation. This can be an instruction, a video, a 3D animation – anything that adds value. It’s always in the right perspective, it’s always very clear, and it’s always accurate. Put simply augmented reality bridges the gap between information and context.
