Ambarish Mitra assesses where Augmented reality stands now: “Ultimately, the present and future of AR quite literally means the ability to receive the right information at the right place directly from the objects we need to know more about.”
On the use of AR in education he writes: “Education provides perhaps the most tangible example of the power of AR. Augmented Reality technology in the classrooms — from today’s tablet- and mobile device-based approach to tomorrow’s heads up displays — empower the sort of visual and contextual learning proven to improve information retention to the extent that an estimated 80 percent of visual content is retained by short-term memory compared to an estimated 25 percent for spoken content.”
