Augmented Reality is the Future of Computing

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


Augmented reality is quickly becoming the future of computing. You've probably seen virtual reality headsets in stores already; they're taking some of the first footsteps into this exciting new realm of technology, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Companies want you to use the 3D space around you to immerse yourself into the computing experience with the help of smartglasses. This would enable you to reach out and interact directly with your content, rather than using a mouse and keyboard to control the experience.

Using just your two hands, you could grab objects, move them around, and re-size them. These might include computer windows or web browser tabs, which can be placed side by side so you can perform research or multitask more efficiently.

Many of these augmented reality concepts are still young and glitchy, but with further refinements just down the road, this technology could be at your within reach in the next few years.
