Free Play 60 | The Future of Augmented Reality


About This Episode

Sometimes reality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.  If I want to travel to the moon or lift a car over my head it’s a whole lot easier to do it in digital space than to go through the trouble of exercising and all that.

Augmented Reality, or AR, is on the rise and making both our gaming and actual lives a little bit more fun than they may have been otherwise.  

But is it all about spotting pokemon, casting spells and catching ghosts, or is there more that AR has to offer this ever-growing technologically expanding world? Well, that’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
