Science fiction comes to life. Have you heard of augmented reality? That’s the software that lets you view computer images on top of what you are seeing in the real world. You could use an iPhone or iPad, for example, when you are looking at a place in a city and get information on places to tour. The augmented reality software, Autonomy, has now added what’s called Aurasma, which lets you use hand gestures to use the virtual content. You don’t have to touch the screen. According to MIT Technology Review (9/15/11), “You reach out your hand and the content responds.” Can you imagine how education might put this type of software to use?
