Augmented Reality – The new learning HUB !
Dr. Dheeraj MehrotraAR or the Augmented Reality
is the new phase in town with reality super-empowered with virtual world in combine. As the researchers say, the capsule of learning encapsulates sense of interface with multiple vistas of innovation with pride. Here comes a new trend of the grandfather of Virtual Reality, the coinage is Augmented Reality (AR). n a layman!s voice, the "Augmented Reality,! is a concept which combines the real and the virtual, giving people a view of reality which has been twea#ed, enhanced or augmented. $he utility is with the usage of smart phones. $he ca#e comes via smart usage of %mart &hones for the smart generation of today. $he delivery of digital learning at pace in the classrooms of today has paved a reverberating demand to e'plore anything of innovation and desire to generate a - onder of onders within the classrooms of today.
The Evaluation of AR
Although augmented reality may seem li#e the stuff of science fiction, researchers have been building prototype system for more than three decades. $he first was developed in the *+s by computer graphics pioneer van %urtherland and his students at Harvard niversity. n the *+/s and *+0s a small number of researchers studied augmented reality at institution such as the .%. Air 1orce!s Armstrong 2aboratory, the 3A%A Ames Research 4enter and the university of 3orth 4arolina at 4hapel Hill. t wasn!t until the early *++s that the term 5Augmented Reality 5was coined by scientists at 6oeing who were developing an e'perimental AR system to help wor#ers assemble wiring arnesses. n *++ developers at 4olumbia niversity develop "$he $ouring 7achine! n 8* 7$ came up with a very compact AR system #nown as 57$hrill9. &resently research is being done in developing 6AR% (6attlefield Augmented Reality %ystems) by engineers at 3aval Research 2aboratory, ashington :.4. f late the revolution has paved over scores of software to supplement the AR in action. $he showcases and road shows are clubbed in con;unction with AR to ma#e the same an event of fun, frolic and participatory. $he simple sound byte with a video can be shared at the youtube presence of the
