There are always new and exciting ways to use technology. This year has been big for augmented reality,Microsoft announced Mixed Reality headsets and has made available AR hardware from 3rd parties such as Dell, Acer, and Lenovo.
Apple announced ARkit and released iOS 11 with new augmented reality features.
One of the most immediate uses of Augmented reality is Amazon’s AR view. All you need is iOS 11 and the Amazon app, select the little camera in the upper right hand corner and tap AR view. There are a list of items available on Amazon to be viewed in your own space via Augmented Reality. I tried it out on my iPhone and found it to be fairly robust.
