Augmented Reality (AR) is one of the most talked about technological innovations today. It is the super-imposition of computer generated images on our physical world. As dull as this sounds, this technology has the WOW factor to blow us away completely. Not only does it have the potential to change the way we interact with our surroundings but it can also revolutionize our physical reality itself. The most popular instance of this technology is the Snapchat avatars that most of us fiddle around with on our phones. But, that is just the tip of the iceberg as AR has the potential to permeate into all aspects of our life, be it education, healthcare, entertainment or even food. To give you a taste of how cool this technology is, we have curated some of the most offbeat ways this technology is being used to change our reality.

In the last decade, many Augmented Reality companies have evolved, creating their own Augmented Reality applications and garnering investments in millions of dollars.
Over the last couple of decades, marketers have moved to the digital space from the physical one. This makes interaction with the consumer much more predictable, measurable and efficient.
