Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that superimposes computer generated images on the users view of the real world thus providing a composite view.

Augmented reality is when digital information is overlaid onto the actual physical world.

Your camera detects a target image, and can figure out how close or far, and at what angle, the target image is form the camera using sensors.

Snapchat : Snapchat has recently added augmented reality to their features with the new lense filters.

       Let's switch over to see exactly how this works.

There are different types of Augmented Reality :-

Marker-based Augmented Reality - use any marker
Marker-less Augmented Reality - no use marker and location less AR
Projection based Augmented Reality - use small projector
Superimposition based - Replace original view to another.

Some of the earliest uses of augmented reality were the head-up displays on figure jets, allowing pilots to see important projected in front of them on their windshields.

This technology eventually made its way to automobiles, and even your eye glasses with google glasses.

There are many apps you can download right now that utilize augmented reality.

Yelp : It has a feature called Monocle that let's you see restaurant review and information around you.

SnapShop : This app uses augmented reality to show you how furniture will in your room before you buy.

AR Zombies : ARZombies lets you shoot zombies around the office like you're Rick from the Walking day.
         One of the most impressive uses of AR for gaming came with the announcement of the Microsoft Hololens.

 The Hololens uses advanced sensors and hardware to scan your room, and creates images based on your physical space. 

You can interact with these images, and see them from different angles using the hololens headset.
