Designing the Future of Augmented Reality

@ VOL 31 ON DEC 04, 2014

Augmented Reality (AR) is typically defined as a layering of digital information over the physical world as experienced through a smartphone, tablet, or digital eyewear. AR is quickly advancing into a new phase of contextually rich personalized experiences that combine sensors, wearable computing, big data, machine-learning, and artificial intelligence. This second wave of AR will surpass novelty and extend our human capacities to better understand and experience our world in new meaningful ways. AR is no longer about technology, it’s about living in the real world and creating meaningful experiences that are human-centred. How do we want to live in and with AR, and how will it shape our lives?
