Future of the Augmented Reality

Augmented reality technology grows rapidly for last two years. The huge potential this technology has not fully revealed. In the near future we expect appearance of large number of companies seeking to take a a new area in the market. More and more quality and exciting applications of augmented reality will appear. Want to know why?

Statistics of search queries for “Augmented Reality” gives eloquent testimony about the growing interest for this technology. For two years the Augmented Reality has become profitable. A lot of AR-advertisement, navigations, entertainment applications has been developed.

The development of markerless AR systems hinders greater complexity of their creation. It takes time to find new algorithms, optimization of the old solutions - in fact augmented reality involves work in real time. This means the system should process huge amount of incoming information from webcams and make rendering just for 20-30 milliseconds!
