Augmented Reality (AR) has existed for quite some time now, but what it will look like soon and its heading is exciting! This technology is going to revolutionize how we interact with the environment. It will turn every device we own into a screen that projects overlaid as real whatever we see through our phones, tablets, and glasses. According to Snapchat, over 2/3 of consumers in all markets believe AR will be valuable and essential in 5 years. The possibilities are endless when you think about this! That is why I wanted to explain better what Augmented Reality is and where it is heading. We will also look at some of the potential industries that AR can impact with the case studies of ART Labs.
