Augmented reality


The promise of augmented and virtual reality was a big focus of Facebook’s annual conference for developers Tuesday. CEO Mark Zuckerberg kicked off the gathering by talking about augmented reality tools he envisions on Facebook. Augmented reality involves the overlay of computer-generated images into real-world surroundin­gs.

Mr. Zuckerberg said new phone-based applicatio­ns might let you create a three-dimensiona­l scene from a single two-dimensiona­l photo or splatter the walls of your house with colorful digital art. (You’d see the digital additions by looking “through” your phone at the augmented physical world.)
