Augmented Reality Comes to Physics
Buesing, Mark; Cook, Michael
Physics Teacher, v51 n4 p226-227 Apr 2013
Augmented reality (AR) is a technology used on computing devices where processor-generated graphics are rendered over real objects to enhance the sensory experience in real time. In other words, what you are really seeing is augmented by the computer. Many AR games already exist for systems such as Kinect and Nintendo 3DS and mobile apps, such as Tagwhat and Star Chart (a must for astronomy class). The yellow line marking first downs in a televised football game and the enhanced puck that makes televised hockey easier to follow both use augmented reality to do the job. (Contains 4 figures and 1 table.)
