“With augmented reality, you pretty much have a target or a trigger, so some type of image to tie some type of file or, you know, 3-D animation to it,” Waid said. “In the future, you’re not going to have to have a target or a marker ’cause we’ve seen some of the new technology that’s still in prototype right now that you can get your phone out and you can just scan an area, and all of a sudden it’s laying down markers in the real world, and you can drop 3-D animations in there, and it will learn the environment.” “I think augmented reality is the future of not only technology, but technology in education mainly,” Minock said. “It changes the way that the kids are engaged in learning, and that’s what we’re going for. We want to get these kids engaged in something to where they’re learning on a level that they don’t even realize they’re learning ’cause they’re so deep into it, and that’s something that augmented reality does.”
