Augmented Reality refers to the ability to overlay information on a live video feed of the world. Currently, a program known as the Augmented ID Program is being developed to help direct people to geo-tagged tweeters on their friends list on Twitter as well as to the nearest pubs or restaurants just by pointing their cameras in whatever direction. Basically, this technology works as a personal dynamic GPS system.
3D gaming involves wearing a pair of 3D sunglasses that can make two-dimensional objects look as if they are three-dimensional. Today, there is a laptop that allows for 3D gaming through its polarized filter type screen, a technology that adds some depth to any DirectX game.
