These augmented reality learning tools range from historic simulation apps to connected building blocks that help kids construct a variety of structures with the help of intuitive technology.

Whether teaching children about engineering, brushing up on historical facts or perfecting a snowboarding technique, tech buffs will fall in love with these useful augmented reality learning tools.

They include diverse examples that are geared towards those with varying interests -- from sports fans to the hearing-impaired. While smart cycling helmets are enhancing safety with the help of blindspot visualization features, wearable AR headsets are now giving the hearing-impaired a chance to communicate more clearly. Other standouts include AR-powered coloring books along with comprehensive GPS apps that teach users about urban hotspots while showing them how to navigate their surroundings.
