Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is the enhancement/supplementation of reality with the aid of a computational

device. Unlike virtual reality, augmented reality does not fully immerse the user into a virtual environment. Augmented reality augments the view of the real world with a virtual world. The virtual world can be a 2d computer display of information and/or a 3d holographic model. The augmented world can be tracked using object recognition by augmented reality systems to allow for interactions.

There are numerous companies that make hardware systems for augmented reality. The following is a breakdown of some of the systems available in the market.
