Augmented Reality

Have you ever thought that reality is less informative? Ok let me give a simple example to give you a clear idea what I am talking about here. Back in the days when we watch cricket matches people have concerns when they see an umpire give a “Leg before Wicket” decision. Couple of years back television broadcaster displayed strip on the from bowlers end to batsman’s end. This gave viewers clear idea where the ball pitched. Get it?

Now you might think this is a simple idea, what’s so special about it? Take a moment to think about the many applications of Augmented Reality.

Here are some examples

Some applications

So why is this so important? More information (accurate, real time) there is more accurate the decision will become. Augmented Reality is the perfect candidate for this.
Web 2.0, SaaS has their own unique applications, but AR is aggressively entering their territories. At least in mobile devices.

Don’t let your eyes and ears deceive you!!
