Augmented Reality




what is augmented reality?
Augmented reality (AR) is the registration of projected computer-generated images over a user’s view of the physical world. With this extra information presented to the user, the physical world can be enhanced or augmented beyond the user’s normal experience. The addition of information that is spatially located relative to the user can help to improve their understanding of it. The images and videos on this web site are demonstrations of what a person experiences when they use our equipment.

Back in my day, people just took drugs, or drank to excess.


Yes it looks like you have to wear a 15 pound helmet to do this, and all you get are really bad graphics. I'm sure they're working on those details.
