Augmented reality

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive technology consisting of superimposing, in real time, virtual elements – images or information – on top of real-world images in order to enrich the user’s perception of this frame of reference. The latter has to use a viewing device, for example, smart glasses, holographic headset or the screen of a smartphone or a digital tablet.

Note: Augmented reality and virtual reality are two distinct technologies.
