Augmented reality – a leap into a new world

Augmented reality is a world that sits somewhere in between virtual reality and ‘real’ reality. It is frequently compared to the Terminator’s abilities from the films of the same name, in which Arnie (presumably having purchased Google Glass) can see computer-generated information about the person he is looking at superimposed in front of his eyes on top of the real world. My analogy is to an alternative sci-fi programme from the 1990s – Quantum Leap. This article discusses the privacy implications of the increasing use of augmented reality technology.
