In this ICT (information and communications technology) video, we look at Augmented Reality, in which your computer screen becomes a magic mirror. The idea is to use a camera and a black and white marker to transmit real-time information about an objects angle and spatial position. This way, real elements (the desktop, hands and marker) are mixed in with virtual elements. Unlike a mirror, though, the image appearing on the screen inverts right and left, which makes orientation a little more complicated. This video looks at various illustrations of this technology which has a high potential in education.
