Enough research has been made to eliminate infrastructure dependency on the PC-based servers. For those who are still unclear of what AR is, there are a numerous videos available on net to catch the augmented reality apps in action. The well established companies are looking towards the AR for having head turning advertisement for publicity.

This will be an excellent strategy for the advertising companies and this is the future trend according to analytics.

Very soon with the AR apps on the cell phones, the billboards and movie posters come alive to guide you on a way to a street or get more information on a product.

On a clearer picture, the Hollywood movie “Looney Toons: Back in Action” is how the augmented reality will be viewed as. In reality you see this mix for real and not screen!

Camouflaging both the animated characters with real time things or people is what Augmented Reality is all about. Thus, with this technology the advertising industry will be alluring more people and brands as advertising will become as creative as it can get. The stores will have suspending arrows in the air on the public roads that will point to routes that will guide the people to walk into their store.
