Augmented Reality

"Augmented Reality" is a computer-generated expansion of the perception of reality.

All senses can be addressed. In most cases, however, it concerns visual overlays of images or videos with computer-generated additional information or virtual objects. Applications are conceivable in all everyday areas. For example, in production planning, as support for repairs or in marketing. In contrast to this, there is virtual reality, where the viewer is completely immersed in the virtual world.
