- Kelly Walsh at Emerging Education Technology looks at applications for augmented reality technology in education, including an interactive solar system display, three-dimensional modeling demonstrations and mobile apps that allows users to create their own overlays.
- A TED video on Aurasma shows how the technology can be used to illustrate and animate on top of live video footage.
- Wikitude's app (which is available for iPhone) allows for sharing information over an AR platform.
From the article:
"... Wikipedia defines Augmented Reality (AR) as, “a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data”. This is broader than my original interpretation, but it makes sense – AR can consist of the cool ‘pop up’ information and visuals that can overlay a view of a place or object (you may have seen these on TV as this technique is increasingly common in commercials), but it can also include 3D modelling, global positioning data, and much more. ..."
