MAC colloquium peers into the future of augmented reality.

"Augmented Reality: Opportunities and Future Directions" looks into the future of experience.

The advent of mobile computing heralds a new and brilliant age of technology--one far more social, mobile, seamless, and satisfying than the PC age could ever be.  Augmented Reality (AR) is the next logical step in mobile computing. AR is heralded as the 8th mass medium; and it is projected that 1B people will be using AR by the end of this decade. This talk will focus on the current applications for AR, as well as future directions and opportunities.
