Do you ever wonder where the best place to put your TV is? Perhaps it's better to see if that 120-inch set you fantasize about fits your desired space before you go out and buy it. Throw away that measuring tape and those false dreams — augmented reality is coming to the rescue.
Augmented Reality is a pretty neat trick that uses a camera to track an object in real life and overlay virtual elements over it. But AR tech is slow, with most camera software unable to keep up with a marked object that is moving around. Sony's SmartAR can ID and track an object at high speeds using new imaging techniques.
