Augmented Reality: The way it works seamlessly without internet and saves us typing time and provides information on-the- go is simply fascinating.
It is an enhanced version of reality created by the use of technology to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device (as a smartphone camera)" – Merriam Webster.
It is an environment where the images of the real world are combined with computer generated sensory inputs (like sounds, graphics, videos or GPS data) resulting in an experience that provides a composite view interlaced with useful information.
Augmented reality has made considerable progress from a sci-fi concept to science-based reality. Until recent times, cost of augmented reality was so high that people could only dream of working on design projects that involved it. Today, things are changed and augmented reality is available even on the mobile handset. That means, design for augmented reality is presently a possibility for all unit-sizes of designer houses.
Of course! Augmented Reality is a disruptive technology which has the potential to influence every aspect of our life including health, communication, gaming, travel and more. Most of the Augmented Reality applications are being made available easily in your pocket, allowing you to explore the world around you, unchained from your table-top PC.
Recognized as the technology of future, AR is advancing its way in the market place with the top brands and organizations continuously experimenting with it. The various applications rising out of the consistent development of Augmented Reality is transforming the way people look and learn from their surroundings, and is revolutionizing workplaces to the extent that they are influencing organizational business models too.
The future of Augmented Reality is bright. Imagine the possibilities: You can get to know things about the city you've lived in for a long time simply by pointing your AR-enabled phone at a close-by park or a building. If you are working in construction, you can save materials by utilizing the virtual markers to assign where a pillar should go or which structural support to examine. Scientists who work in shifts to assemble a dinosaur skeleton could leave virtual "notes" to the colleagues on the bones themselves, specialists can deliver virtual graffiti and doctors can overlay a digital picture of a patient's X-rays onto a mannequin for included authenticity.
