Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer.
Augmented reality enhances one’s current perception of reality, whereas in contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. Mobile VR is VR that is using a mobile phone as the primary viewing device (display), often with a headset like Google Cardboard or others.
We had a request from a client to implement an integration demonstration for HoloLens with an existing network infrastructure database. The goal of our application is to provide assistance to the system administrator in monitoring and maintaining the IT inventory in an organization.
