Applications of Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) has many applications in gaming, entertainment, learning, and more.

One popular application is augmented reality video games, which provide the experience of actually being inside the game world. Augmented reality video games can be used in real-life situations like riding a bike, taking a hike, going shopping, or attending a movie event. These games can also be used by people suffering from sensory processing disorders such as autism or those with physical handicaps.

Another popular application of Augmented Reality is mixed reality or multi-sensory experience, also known as multi-sensory computing. This concept involves combining the computer system's digital information input with physical information from various sensors of the human body to create an interactive display. For instance, an individual can feel the heat of their laptop computer by merely looking at it.

Augmented Reality software programs allow users to interact with the digital information on the screen and with one another and with other objects in the real world.

Virtual Reality (VR) is expanding beyond gaming and entering into the domain of education. For example, teachers can use Augmented Reality (AR) to give students hands-on practice for classroom skills such as spelling or reading.

Using Augmented Reality, teachers can add digital elements to the world around them, such as classmates' names or the words "green" or "yellow." The interaction with these elements allows students to learn visually rather than just verbally.

In addition to the uses seen in classrooms, numerous business organizations worldwide have created in-house or outsourced Virtual Reality environments to enhance productivity, solve problems, or boost interest.
