What is Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) is a growing field of technology where real life is modified and enhanced by computer-generated sights and sounds. The most common use of AR can be seen through mobile apps. Point your device’s camera at something that the app recognizes, and it will generated a 3D animation or video superimposed over whatever is on your camera’s screen. The effect makes the computer-generated item appear like it’s really there.

Talking the Talking

  • augmented reality: making something come to life
  • aura: the magic thing that pops up when you hold your device over something
  • target/trigger: the picture you want to make cooler that is just normal (probably something from your camera roll or in your photos)
  • overlay: the thing you will apply on top of the trigger image (usually a video from your camera roll)
