Monday Enhancement: Berlin Wall 3-D


Augmented reality, or AR, is a rapidly developing area of interaction design. The point of AR is to enhance your surroundings, whether you're visiting a new city, reading a book, or shopping for groceries. It's similar to the idea of virtual reality, but instead of sweeping you out of your environment into an alternate world, AR enhances what's already around you. At the moment, ideas in AR are outpacing technology.
