Augmented reality (AR)

Augmented reality (AR) refers to

* a simple combination of real and virtual (computer-generated) worlds. Given a real subject, captured on video or

camera, the technology ‘augments’ (= adds to) that real-world image with extra layers of digital information.

* the technology of combining real world images, video, etc. with computer-generated information and/or imagery.

*an enhanced version of reality where live direct or indirect views of physical real-world environments are augmented with superimposed computer-generated images over a user’s view of the real-world, thus enhancing one’s current perception of reality.

Augmented reality enhances one’s current perception of reality, whereas in contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one
