Metaverse is the buzzword that is dominating the tech world right now, and augmented reality is one of the ways people are already bringing the concept to life.
Augmented reality (AR) mashes digital information onto an image or viewing area of a real space, modifying the environment with visual elements or other sensory stimuli. One of the first widely used examples of AR in gaming was the wildly popular Pokémon GO. Tech companies and businesses took notice, seeing possible applications in 3D modeling, warehouse logistics, training, industrial applications, design… the list goes on and on.
Soon, the tools we use to access the Metaverse – and AR will be a huge part of that new world - will be as ubiquitous as televisions and smartphones.
