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