Let’s Talk Augmented Reality

Augmented reality can also be used to bring the internet into the real world, with virtual billboards, maps, and running commentary on the places you go and the people you meet. Here’s a little article about augmented reality and what it’s doing in the video game space. zConnection has the story.
