We just published a new article titled: "Augmented Reality: Where are we now and where is it going?". Here's an excerpt of the article:
I am pretty sure that you have heard about Augmented Reality in the past few months or so as it has become the new trendy buzzword. But unlike a lot of buzzword from before (Multimedia in the 90s, web2.0 a few years ago, etc.) Augmented Reality actually means some new advancement in technology and will require a completely different behaviour from the users. The term Augmented Reality is said to have been around for nearly 20 years now, but real applications have only existed for 2 years or so (there was a few attempts in the earlier years, but nothing available to the mass consumers until recently). Also, it has only become very clear of what could become of Augmented Reality in the past 2 years as many articles and research projects centered on this concept have been going on. We will first have a look at what exactly Augmented Reality is and we will separate the different technologies in two categories. After, we will look at actual working examples of Augmented Reality and we will finish this article with a view on the future of Augmented Reality and where it could bring us.

We are surrounded by more and more devices and gadgets that gives us feedback according to the environment we evolve in. Let's take a GPS as example. The feedback received can be audio or visual, but we need to move our attention from our current focus - the road - to read and use it's signals. Now imagine what Augmented Reality will let us do with such common devices in the coming years...
