Augmented reality apps

List: From reading newspapers with video content to getting tourist information on the go, these five AR apps will change the world as you see it.


The augmented reality (AR) market is poised for an enormous growth over the next four years, with revenues forecast to reach $120bn in 2020, up from this year’s $1bn, according to Digi Capital.

CBR lists five apps for AR devices.




Aurasma, an HP development company, has created an app that can be used to give everyday objects a second life through AR with graphics, video, audio and 3D content.

To use the app, those interested have to download it from the Apple Store or Android Store, create an account with a valid email address and create an Aura (a given object’s second life) which can take as little as 60s.

Users of the technology today include Disney, Argos, Budweiser and Best Western.
