Review quote

"Augmented Reality is not the stuff of science fiction any more, and we should all be at least familiar with its current and likely future uses. This book aims to be an easy-to-digest guide on the subject matter.If you are not familiar with the concept of AR, this book will be an eye-opener. It is a quick and fascinating read, and the authors don't get bogged down in unnecessary details."--Help Net Security online, January 23, 2013 "Kipper and Rampolla explain what augmented reality (AR) is, how it can be used in a variety of industries and applications, and concepts for new applications in business and crime-fighting."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013 "If you want to see the future, look here. The product of years of research, Augmented Reality is a comprehensive overview of this stunning disruptive technology -- a type of 'reality on steroids'. A must read for venture capitalists, cyber-security professionals, policy makers, and entrepreneurs."--Edward M. Roche, Grenoble Ecole de Management
