Augmented reality, surprisingly enough, is here. Few people realize that virtual environments have already been meshed into our lives. From the battlefield to consumer culture we have seen a slow, perhaps even subversive, integration of augmented reality.
The new Iron Man movie features a website that pings a user’s webcam and uses face tracking algorithms to overlay a virtual image of Iron Man’s helmet onto the person in front of the terminal. This is just a small example of augmented reality. I look forward to see what is to come!
