AR (augmented reality) vs QR (quick response codes) vs Holograms: the deconstruction of architectural being


AUGMENTED REALITY (AR) is an implementation of real-world environment because their elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. So that, the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable. Artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the real world.
For enjoy with AR, nowadays, it´s necessary to have an smart phone and install an app with HMD (head-mounted display) which places images of both the physical world and virtual objects over the user’s field of view and its sensors allows the system to align virtual information to the physical world and adjust accordingly with the user’s head movements.
But, the intention of current investigations is the interface´s elimination like smartphones in order to use this information without hands.
