Augmented Reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of reality to which elements are added by a computer. The result is an enriched perception of reality for the participant. It is therefore a very good tool to support learning.
For their 2013 catalog, IKEA has decided to enrich the 211 million copies of the magazine with Augmented Reality. By downloading the IKEA app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store and scanning the pages of the catalogue, the reader is able to obtain additional information about the products. This information varies from displaying a video to putting 3D models of the products in your living room. The technique is more available to you than you might think.
