What is Augmented Reality and what will an augmented future look like? Learn more from a panel of experts that includes cutting-edge artists, software developers, gaming specialists, sociologists and social historians. Following the panel discussion, attendees will reassemble outdoors for an interactive demonstration and virtual art tour that blurs the line between the real and the virtual. Augmented Reality, or AR, uses free smart phone apps that overlay 3-D images and information on top of real-time screen visuals as seen through the smart phone camera lens. The walking tour and demonstration will include site-specific AR content developed by artists to interact with locations and landmarks along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
