Write and submit an original essay on the topic “The Future of Real-World Environment with Augmented Reality”.
Have you ever wondered that computer-generated objects can change the environment around us? It is already widely used in many fields like shopping, aviation, gaming. When pilots are landing or taking off, they can see a path on the runway that helps them maintain a safe flight; people can try fit furniture into their homes by using various apps on their phones or tablets. All of this is called Augmented Reality and it has way more possibilities than we can imagine. AR makes our physical world more extensive adding digital objects at it.
We want students to think about how Augmented Reality can change our everyday lives by interacting with digital objects in our environment. Will it comfort our lives or will it become a powerful craving?
