ABC News reported that Apple CEO Tim Cook expressed his belief that he sees a more promising future for Augmented Reality than Virtual Reality. Well, in a sense, Augmented reality actually does hold more water as you can develop applications and games that superimpose digital imagery over real life videos.
The technology that is Augmented Reality first blew up when the game "Pokemon GO" was released. The mobile video game got players to leave the virtual world for a little bit to catch Pokemon everywhere, thanks to Augmented Reality, overlaying the game's characters onto images became one of the game's primary draws.
