Augmented Reality (video demos)

“Augmented reality (AR) is a field of computer research which deals with the combination of real-world and computer-generated data…most AR research is concerned with the use of live video imagery which is digitally processed and ‘augmented’ by the addition of computer-generated graphics. Advanced research includes the use of motion-tracking data, fiducial marker recognition using machine vision, and the construction of controlled environments containing any number of sensors and actuators.”
