Augmented Reality on Your Phone - NYTimes.com

Now you can walk into both real and imaginary things while using your mobile device

According to a new report released by Forrester research on Monday, the technology behind augmented reality apps has improved enough so that these apps may well become an integral part of using a mobile phone, augmenting real life with broad strokes of information and commentary.

The report, complied by Thomas Husson, a Forrester senior analyst, acknowledges that until now augmented reality apps have been fun, but entirely impractical because technology limitations often rendered information slowly and inaccurately.

But the report predicts that this will soon change as information becomes “ultra-accurate and delivered in a perfectly seamless way.”
