Guide to Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality turns the world around you into a digital interface by putting virtual objects in the material world, in real-time. Augmented Reality can be seen through a wide variety of activities. We distinguish 3 main categories of Augmented Reality tools.
Augmented Reality 3D viewers, like Augment, allow users to place life-size 3D figures in your world with or without the use of trackers. Trackers are simple images that 3D models can be attached to in Augmented Reality.
Augmented Reality browsers improve your camera display with contextual information. For example, you can point your smartphone at a building to display its history or estimated value.
The last way that Augmented Reality is generally experienced is through gaming, creating immersive gaming activities that utilize your actual surroundings. Imagine shooting games with zombies walking in your own bedroom! The biggest use of Augmented Reality gaming to-date is Pokémon Go, allowing users to catch virtual Pokémon who have hidden everywhere in a map of the real world.
