Augmented Reality

From Wikipedia:

Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment whose elements are augmented by virtual computer-generated sensory input such as sound or graphics. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality.

Check this out this post by Mashable on his Blog for some real exemple of AR:

Virtual worlds, interaction between users, interaction between shoppers and supplliers will be key to the next web experience. Will Santa be Reality or just Augmented Reality?
