Museum Augmented Reality

AR is the melding in 3D space of virtual and real views and objects from a User’s perspective.  This allows the user to explore the virtual world in a more intuitive way, as their portal into it ( ascreen typically) can come with them, and use a combination of cameras and position sensors to determine where it is and where it is facing. A good example of early museum AR can be found at New Scientist, with video. The next step will be using commodity devices such as Android pads and smartphones changing this from a novelty to a standard part of museum and installation experiences.
