Augmented reality is a hot new area for Research & Development in the Mobile Tech & Marketing field. Emagin defines it as “a display in which simulated imagery, graphics, or symbology is superimposed on a view of the surrounding environment”. Wikipedia defines it as “Augmented reality (AR) is a field of computer research which deals with the combination of real-world and computer-generated data (virtual reality), where computer graphics objects are blended into real footage in real time.”
