Hasn’t the generation moved to tech? May be that is a very lame question to which the answer is yes. Certainly, Augmented reality apps are one prime example of how we see the real world with computer effects which enhances it dramatically. To define it precisely, Augemented Reality is view of a real and physical image with some of its elements modified by computer generated effects, resulting in an enhanced perception of the real-time image.
If you still dint get what Augemented reality is ! Then this one should. Most of us would have seen the movie Terminator, though it was a machine it could see and get data of a person in reality by seeing. This is Augmented reality.
Augemented reality is soon landing which is not so far but for those who want to experience it now can get a taste of it with your Android phone.
Best Augmented Reality Apps for Android are :
Want to get information like the Terminator? Extend your eyes to the Android Phone and you are in with it. The App gives you digital information about the surroundings which you are viewing through your Android Phone Camera. It will be really useful when you are in a new place all together but it has its own negatives. You need to have layars to actually view the information. If you want you can create your own layer by registering on their website http://layar.com.

This app although is one of the better Augemented Reality Apps but it may not be recommended for use. This app helps you to be safe on road but by taking your eyes off the road and seeing the phone can be harmful. Apple has been negotiating with car manufacturers to get a button for iPhone Siri to work in their steering wheel which would be possible with one of the Apple iOS 6 features. The app changes color to red when you are closer to another vehicle and green when you are safe.

When we travel to a new place it is very difficult to get to know the places specially when there is a language problem. With yelp you will be able to ask people about the places nearby you from your Android Phone. Yelp has an augmented reality feature which overlays business information near you. A real cool app to try out.

3D Compass +:
I really liked this app which actually lets you get the direction in which you are heading in reality. Just open the app and you will be able to see clear real time compass on your Android Screen with the motion in the background. This is one of the best augmented reality apps that I like and use usually.
