Augmented Reality (AR) is a growing field of technology where real life is modified and enhanced by computer-generated sights and sounds. The most common use of AR can be seen through mobile apps. Point your device’s camera at something that the app recognizes, and it will generated a 3D animation or video superimposed over whatever is on your camera’s screen. The effect makes the computer-generated item appear like it’s really there.

Want to see how it works? Here is a video from IKEA showing their AR app in action.

    May I suggest the application ARiane made by French Spatial Agency : that lets you launch Ariane V in augmented reality !

    https://itunes.apple.com/fr/app/ariane/id447061944?mt=8

    It guides you throuth the real steps before you can hit the red button – it even checks real weather conditions !

    Cheers

    AR
    apps today are great and give classrooms so much to interact with. But anyway,
    it rests on the hands of Augmented Reality developers and the end-users that are made
    specifically with AR in mind, taking advantage of its possibilities.
