The two types of augmented reality
JULY 20, 2010
My favourite example of augmented reality is now a couple of years old: While it might not be as flash as the xkcd enthusiasts might demand from this emerging technology, it remains practical and – gasp! But are these two latter examples really augmented reality? By projecting both the digital imagery and the real background onto a computer screen, I would argue they are not actually augmenting reality. In other words, a copy of reality.
