Introduction to Augmneted Reality
Augmented reality, often abbreviated as AR, is a live, direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. Augmented reality is the merging of real-world and virtual reality in a seamless way. By overlaying digital information on top of an image, 3D object or video, augmented reality makes interactive and engaging experiences possible. The experience can be viewed through a smartphone or tablet screen, or through specific head-mounted displays like Google Glass. Augmented reality is typically a software application that displays useful content on top of a camera feed from your smartphone, tablet or computer. The content is typically related to what you’re looking at so for example when browsing through the Christmas decorations at a retailer you might get ideas for complementary presents or decoration styles. Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with our physical world. It uses a mobile device to project a virtual layer of graphics, sounds and other media into the environment around you. Augmented reality (or AR) is a technology that allows real-world objects to be augmented with, or replaced by virtual information. Augmented reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment that is augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video and graphics. As an example, AR can be used to display information about the surrounding environment in real time, such as when looking at your phone’s camera viewfinder, through a transparent lens on the device. Exhibit is an augmented reality platform that lets you see, hear and explore historical moments in time. It’s a collaborative experience where you can share your point of view in exhibitions, interact with objects and people from the past, and learn about the stories behind them all. Augmented reality (AR) is a direct or indirect live view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. Augmented reality is one of the latest technologies on the market. It combines digital information with a live view of the world, and allows the user to interact with it in various ways using the smartphone. From browsing through shopping and aesthetic cards, to directing audio guides and maps through augmented reality (AR) apps, this technology is helping consumers discover new ways to use their smartphones. Augmented reality is the main goal of this project, but in a more personalized way. By creating a unique AR experience for each audience, it allows users to experience the product first-hand by bringing it into their real world. By doing so, manufacturers can promote, show and sell products in a new interactive way that gets them closer to their customers. With our wearable camera we capture everyday objects with augmented reality capabilities.
