AR Turning Vision into Reality!

Augmented Reality (AR) is an emerging field and it is set to have a big impact on every single known industry. From education to manufacturing, we are about to witness an AR revolution that will not only change how the industry works but also provides a way of turning vision into reality. Just think, what if the training of the medical staff of a hospital or armed forces personnel can be done using the AR setup. It provides the experience of being trained in a real-world field. A number of medical practitioners all around the globe used to gain experience in surgery through Augmented Reality. India’s education system needs a lot of improvement. AR can enhance classroom learning significantly by introducing concepts through smart labs. In this blog, we are going to discuss all of these things in a unique way. It is a scientifically proven fact that visuals are more effective than text. You learn better from 5 images than 1000 words! Therefore, the majority of content in this blog is visuals to enhance grasping of the subject matter. After all, we are talking about Augmented Reality.

A Brief Introduction to Augmented Reality (AR)

Augmented Reality (AR) first takes a real-world environment and then adds a computer-generated input to it. Several parts from both of the environments, real and augmented, can interact together and even digitally manipulated. Therefore, AR can simply be defined as an amalgamation of both of the worlds. It renders a 3D registration of real and virtual objects.
