What is augmented reality?
Augmented reality combines reality with an computer-generated layer of any sensorial input eg. text, audio, video or a 3D model.
AR enhances one’s current perception of reality in contrast to Virtual Reality (VR), which replaces the real world with a simulated one.
Augmentation techniques are typically performed in real time and in context with environmental elements, such as overlaying supplemental information like 3D-models of a building over the place, where it once stood.
