Augmented reality, enhanced reality with interactive digital components. To give an example of the most widely used AR applications these days, we can decipher smartphones to showcase the digitally enriched world. By activating a smartphone's camera, users can see the real world around them on the screen and rely on an AR app to decipher that world in any way.Via digital overlays:
Superimposing images, digital information and/or 3D models.
Add real-time directions.
Add a label.
Change the appearance of the user or their environment through "filters" on Instagram, Snapchat and other apps.
Various devices can display AR, and the list thus grows: screens, glasses, mobile devices, and head-mounted screens.
To understand what AR is, it is also important to understand what it is not.
AR is not a decidedly immersive experience like virtual reality (VR). Virtual reality (VR) requires users to wear a dedicated headset and lure them into a decidedly digital world, while AR allows them to continue to interact with the physical world around them.
Augmented reality (Dec) is a technology that allows people to superimpose digital content (images, sounds, text) onto the real-world environment. Dec received much attention in 2016 when the game Pokémon Go made it possible to interact with Pokémon superimposed on the world via a smartphone screen.
