Why Augmented Reality Now?

WHAT IS AUGMENTED REALITY?

Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.

WHY SHOULD MARKETERS CARE?

Unlike other digital advancements, which allow our devices to perform functions faster and more intelligently, Augmented Reality actually gives us a new way to perceive the real world around us. There is an intrinsic sense of delight from the playful nature of AR executions which can be harnessed to market almost any visible object.

HOW CAN IT HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

As consumer expectations for brand experience continue to increase, AR can enhance experiences along the customer journey by adding a digital element to a physical environment. As mobile device use continues to increase, AR's ability to surprise and delight customers through their phone will become more valuable.
