Samsung SARI AR SDK markerless tracker used in the AR EdiBear game ( Android OS) Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality , in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. [ 1 ] By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match.
