Augmented reality is the process of overlaying the virtual world on top of the physical world through technology. Brandon demonstrated it for me the other night using an iPhone application that identified our location and overlaid a map to local restaurants on top of the view we saw through the phone, much like the image above.

I hereby predict that this term will evolve and shift into everyday business speak. I’ll update this post when it does.
