The company is creating what it calls a real-world OS, which combines augmented reality with 3D mapping and other technologies to allow devices to interpret a users surroundings, and then display 3D images and information in the users line of sight. The result is a fascinating combination of real and virtual worlds that can facilitate anything from navigation guidance displayed right on the ground in a users path, to allowing people to play games where the room around them is the backdrop.
