What is augmented reality? Well in simple terms it is pulling graphics out of your television screen or computer display and integrating them into real-world environments. This new technology, called augmented reality, blurs the line between what’s real and what’s computer-generated by enhancing what we see, hear, feel and smell.

One thing to note though between virtual reality, which creates immersive, computer-generated environments, and the real world, augmented reality is closer to the real world.

Both video games and cell phones are driving the development of augmented reality with the IPhone X and IPhone 8 Leading the pack. Everyone from tourists, to soldiers, to someone looking for the closest bus stop now have the ability to place computer-generated graphics in their field of vision.
