Augmented Reality…?

It seems like augmented reality was less of a reality and more of a dream for science-fiction enthusiasts in decades past, and now we are living in an era where this could become a reality. What maybe wasn’t anticipated was the ubiquity of different types of hardware, such as smartphones.

Since smartphones are such an available platform, but also could contain a lot of tracking information, it will take time for the ethical privacy concerns to evolve to mesh with the technology.
