Technology at your fingertips with Augmented Reality

Millennials have no idea how easy they have it these days, and though I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad, technology is making it easier for us. The struggles were real when one would have to physically get up off the couch to change the channel on our box TV, or pull over to the side of the road with coins to make a phone call—imagine that!

360-degree cameras and Virtual Reality (VR) headsets have already opened the doors to the future. The World of 3D and Virtual Reality isn't something that we watch on TV or play on video games anymore, and even flying cars are becoming a concept now with the ever growing fascination with drones. Yes, we're one step closer to the utopia we once watched on The Jetsons.

The new craze and gadget of the 20th Century is being developed by companies like Aryzon and they're making it available for everyone to enjoy. You will, however, need to use your smart phone. Augmented Reality (AR) is no longer something of the future, and it's no longer something used in high classified Industries.

So what is Augmented Reality?

Augmented Reality

For those who've watched Marvel's Iron Man, you'll remember seeing AR technology used by Tony Stark when he transforms what's on his computer screen into a 3D dimensional picture out in front of him with a swipe from his fingers. What's seen on your screen, in this case your smart phone, becomes amplified in an element that gives you a 3D image or short video out in front of you. Though you will need to download a free mobile app and use special glasses or a headset to view the augmented image, this type of technology will be available for everyone and anyone to use—and it's sooner than you think.

Augmented Reality is beneficial for teaching at schools and hospitals, and even commercial companies can benefit from AR. To be able to show actual hands-on AR content in real life through these types of dimensional images will be a valuable tool for educational purposes.

Aryzon: Augmented Reality for Smartphones

Aryzon is just one of the few companies in today's market that has broken the barriers and has developed the AR technology for everyone to enjoy on smart phones. Their KickStarter campaign was successful with its backers and was recently fully funded. They'll soon be shipping their first batch of AR sets to backers in September, and I'm sure those who backed this project are eagerly waiting to get their hands on them.

Thanks to the Aryzon Founders, anyone can now experience the new AR technology straight from their own smart phone simply by using the Aryzon headset and app.
