At present, one of the most important technological trends evolving in the software industry is Augmented Reality (AR). Products like Google Glass and visual, head equestrian displays have further proliferated the market demand of AR.
Owing to its demand, one might be curious to know how this augmented reality truly operates. AR works by utilizing and identifying algorithms, which it receives from the vision of a computer to augment visuals, video, sound, and all other sensor dependent inputs over the actual world objects with the help of a user’s camera.
It is one of the fastest growing technologies, slated to reach billions by the end of this year. AR helps users to have a distinct and more interactive world, which blends both real and simulated world together. In addition to these, AR is not limited to only computers and mobile phones, but also other devices as well, thereby providing a pool of users a completely new experience in the digital world.
Let’s dive into how this form of technology can be the game-changer for both engineers and designers:
