Augmented Reality (AR) works with three key components: hardware, software, and yourself. You perceive the physical world using your five senses: sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. An AR-capable hardware device runs software that layers digital information into your physical world surroundings. AR hardware and software create interactive experiences that involve your senses as you utilize data presented in real-time. Great AR experiences successfully keep digital information presented accurately within your physical space even as you move to provide a smooth and realistic experience.
