Augmented Reality (AR) blurs the boundary between the physical and digital worlds. In AR's current exploration phase, innovators are beginning to create compelling and contextually rich applications that enhance a user's everyday experiences. In this book, Dr. Helen Papagiannis - a world-leading expert in the field - introduces you to AR: how it's evolving, where the opportunities are, and where it's headed.
