From zombies in the windows of Buckingham Palace, to catching the rays on a tropical island, it seems that augmented reality can literally take you to the ends of the earth.
But what on earth is augmented reality? The term itself doesn’t particularly roll off the tongue and the concept isn’t easy to get your head around.
Most people would assume it’s something to do with techno geeks and gamers who spend 17 hours a day in a dark room playing world of warcraft, and they’d be right. So far augmented reality has only been used to enhance gaming experiences. However, recently it would seem augmented reality is beginning to change the way we think of ourselves, objects and the world around us. Still with me? Good.
