Augmented and virtual reality are bringing people together to share incredible experiences, even when spread across vast geographic distances. Imagine strolling through a museum, visiting the courts of kings and queens, or getting medical training — all from the comfort of your home. For nearly 50 years, computer scientists have been pioneering AR and VR to turn this vision into reality.

According to MarketResearch.com, the augmented reality market is expected to outpace the $30 billion virtual reality market, growing to $120 billion by 2022.
