Augmented Reality

Augmented reality combines reality and virtuality, offering a new way to imagine

Implications - Bridging the gap between virtual reality and reality, augmented reality intensifies what is already in existence to create a unique combination of real and virtual. It allows for interactivity through digital means, augmenting real-world elements but not going as far as to make the new reality impossible. Thus, augmented reality allows users to imagine an "enhanced" world that could also be very well within reach.
