Augmented reality has long sounded like a wild futuristic concept, but the technology has actually been around for years. It becomes more robust and seamless with each passing decade, providing an astonishing means of superimposing computer-generated images atop a user's view of reality, thus creating a composite view rooted in both real and virtual worlds.
Although augmented reality apps run the gamut from interactive map overlays and virtual showrooms to massive multiplayer king of the hill titles and the like, each piece of software hones in on smartphone GPS and camera functionality to create a more immersive experience. The available selection of augmented reality apps is diverse, encompassing both premium and freemium offerings from a variety of big and no-name developers, but sometimes choosing which apps are worth your smartphone or tablet's precious memory is tougher than using the apps themselves. After all, none of them are going to tout the kind of augmented experience offered through Google Glass or Epson's forthcoming Moverio BT-200 glasses, albeit, not initially anyway.
