Humans have always learned best through experience in the natural world. The stunning promise of augmented reality is that suddenly we will be able to interact and emotionally connect with anything we can imagine in a hands-on, three-dimensional environment. The possible applications range from more immersive classroom learning to a collaborative creative tool that can be used in real time to bring storytellers together from around the world.
Meta is one of the companies at the forefront of designing our AR future. Their focus is not on creating experiences that distract or pull us out of the real world, but rather that enhance our natural environments and facilitate greater learning and communication than has been available before.
