Our students were having fun with the colAR app discovering what augmented reality is and does.

What is Augmented Reality?

 Augmented reality is changing the way we view the world -- or at least the way its users see the world. Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.

 As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality.

 With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable.

 Artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the real world.
