Augmented Reality: A Revolution in Modern Learning

  • Chris Francy, AdMed, Inc.

Augmented reality (AR) is thought to be on the verge of revolutionizing our world. AR overlays computer-generated information on the real world in real time. In fact, many top tech companies including Apple, Google, and Microsoft are devoting large financial and human resources to AR products and applications. In this learning lab we will explore some exciting examples of AR and describe how it can be used in biomedical training. Stay after the session to use an actual AR demo.
