About Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality is a live direct view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated 3D models, animations, videos, etc.

Augmentation is in real time and the information is overlaid on the live view of the device’s camera.  Essentially, AR requires three elements:
• Android device with back camera
• AR application
• AR Markers.
