  • Augmented Reality = Hollywood + Ordinary Reality
  • Unlike virtual reality, augmented reality does not create a simulation of reality. Instead, it takes a real
    object or space as the foundation and incorporates technologies that add contextual data to deepen a person’s understanding of
    the subject. For example, by superimposing imaging data from an MRI onto a patient’s body, augmented reality can help a surgeon
    pinpoint a tumor that is to be removed. In this case, the technology used might include headgear worn by the surgeon
    combined with a computer interface that maps data to the person lying on the operating table. In other cases, augmented reality
    might add audio commentary, location data, historical context, or other forms of content that can make a user’s experience of a
    thing or a place more meaningful.
