Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) has been around for a few years now but I suspect it will really gain real traction in 2017…

I saved this just last month from the Guardian – The complete guide to virtual reality.

AR mentioned in 2017 Trends, AR in Facebook as a trend for 2017.

But the difference between AR and VR…as the Guardian story says….’While virtual reality is about immersing you in an entirely virtual world, viewed through a screen in your headset, the real world outside you isn’t part of the experience – at least not until you trip over the cat or accidentally knock out your child while immersed elsewhere. But augmented reality, as the name suggests, is about augmenting or adding to reality reality. You might be looking at your cat or up your street, but there could be digital characters and content overlaid on them’.

Aurasma is an AR app. I can see the use for it especially in teaching/learning.

Pokemon Go was a huge hit in 2016 so 2016 was probably the year that AR became mainstream.
