WTF is augmented reality? #3

‘Augmented reality for dummies’ would desribe it as an image of reality added with elements.

The most hyped application at the moment that uses augmented reality is Pokémon GO. The image you see is your street, room, whatever… and the added element is the Pokémon. Clean and simple. Thanks to Pokémon GO augmented reality had a mainstream breakthrough.

But also Snapchat uses AR. The common thing of Pokémon GO and Snapchat? Young people love it.

That Pokémon GO has great potential for cities is a fact. But why don’t we take it a step further and put the whole city in augmented reality?
