Surface – The most understandable form of ‘reality that is augmented’ would be screens, floors, walls etc that respond to the touch of people in them providing them with virtual real time information or collaboration Museums, Shopping mall, Exhibition http://www.mobilebehavior.com/tag/augmented-reality/
Pattern – The AR performs simple pattern recognition on a shape, marker (usually on a framed card in the real world scene) or face and replaces it with a static or moving element e.g: a 3D model, info, audio, video stream or loop etc: You view the ‘items’ in the scene with you . Education, Entertainment http://www.computergraphica.com/2006/12/20/osgart-10-augmented-reality-software-development-kit/ http://blog.theflashblog.com/?p=984
Outline – This is where your hand, eye or body outline is picked up and seamlessly ‘merged’ with the virtual elements. Simple example where you can pick up a 3D object that doesn’t exist because the system is tracking your hand outline. Augmented ID http://www.engadget.com/2009/07/09/video-tats-augmented-reality-concept-unveiled/
Location – Based on detailed GPS or triangulation location & position/view of the camera/ device the AR system can overlay information precisely over buildings or people as you move through real space. http://www.pestaola.gr/acrossair-nearest-tube-augmented-reality-iphone-app/ http://technabob.com/blog/2009/08/28/dishpointer-augmented-reality-iphone-3gs-app/
Hologram – Using ‘smoke & spinning mirrors’ literally in some cases, virtual or real items are ‘projected’ into the physical space you are in and can be interactive with based on cameras tracking real world impulses e.g: hand gestures or audio signals http://ilab.cs.ucsb.edu/index.php/component/content/article/10/25
