This is what happens when augmented reality becomes too accessible.

How long will it be until we all rely on augmented reality way too much?
Like we already do, with mobile phones, internet, social media and google.

Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment whose elements are merged with (or augmented by) virtual computer-generated imagery – creating a mixed reality. The augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements.

Augmented reality has actually been around for years (eg: sports scores overlaid on TV during a match screening, or a “heads up” display for a Fighter Pilot).

However, having it accessible through mobile devices is about to take this to a whole new level.
This will be the new way to get information. Having this technology integrated with mobile devices makes it so easily accessible that we will not think twice before accepting what it says as the truth.

Augmented reality is already abeing used in many different iPhone apps and online.

It is going to offer us a whole new world, which s ome will choose to keep their distance from, and others will attempt to live inside of constantly.

For me, I look forward to the day that I can use the technology to guide me to where I left my car keys.
