  7. 7. “Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or anindirect view of a physical, real-world environment whoseelements are augmented by computer-generated sensory inputsuch as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to amore general concept called mediated reality, in which a view ofreality is modified (possibly even diminished rather thanaugmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functionsby enhancing one’s current perception of reality. By contrast,virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one.” Wikipedia, August 2, 2011
  8. 8. “Augmented reality n. the use of technology which allowsthe perception of the physical world to be enhanced ormodified by computer-generated stimuli perceived with the aidof special equipment; reality as perceived in this way.” OED, draft edition, December 2005
