What is Augmented Reality?

Augmented Reality, or AR, is a technology that overlays computer generated content over the real-world view of a user’s device (i.e. smartphone, tablet) in real-time. Users can have a life-like experience with augmented objects in their environment by interacting with them as they would real objects.
