A BRIEF HIS­TORY OF AUG­MENTED RE­AL­ITY

Hyper - - FEATURE -

Aug­mented re­al­ity sim­ply means a real-world en­vi­ron­ment that’s been sup­ple­mented (or aug­mented) by com­puter-gen­er­ated in­puts such as graph­ics, video, sound, or GPS data. While the term aug­mented re­al­ity was first coined by re­searcher Tom Caudell in 1990, its ori­gins can be traced back to the 1950s and 60s when patents for head mounted dis­plays that over­layed vi­su­als on top of real world lo­ca­tions first sur­faced.
