Augmented reality has been with us for years. There have been apps, games, and university research programs but it hasn’t been a mainstream reality until recently. Anyone who tries it can understand its applications in education. Google Glass is the most immersive way to experience it right now, but it seems like we might finally be getting closer to mainstream utilization. “Every year seems to bring us new technologies that once fit more neatly into science fiction stories than reality. Augmented reality sounds pretty futuristic, but with the help of mobile technology, it’s made its way into everyday life for some of the population.” From Getting Smart.
