Augmented reality is rapidly catching up to its better-known cousin virtual reality.
This technology relies on goggles or glasses to overlay projected images or holograms onto the visible world. So, for instance, you can watch movies on a window, learn how to repair a car through a 3D-project engine or a play a game where critters hide behind the couch in your living room.
Pioneers in these fields see this as the next evolution for the Internet and digital learning. Imagine, for instance, 5th grade geography lesson about the Sahara desert with a virtual tour of that environment, or a virtual field trip to the Smithsonian museums.
