Augmented reality – the future of social media law enforcement and real life

Augmented Reality (AR) will fundamentally change the way how we access, understand, enjoy and share digital information.  Military use AR on the battlefield.  But soon all applications and consumers will be able point a mobile device camera at anything in the real world and instantly receive contextual information.  This is the future of AR and the future of technology in law enforcement.

Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. By contrast, virtual realityreplaces the real world with a simulated one.
