Augmented reality is not a new concept, it has actually has been around for many years in one form or another. To the best of my knowledge it all started with the stereo spectroscope.

Today augmented reality comes in many, many forms, but they're still not much more than methods for tricking the eyes. One of the most popular has been the introduction of AR (Augmented Reality) eyewear for gaming. These follow normal lines and allow for either enhanced viewing, 3D viewing or some combination of the two.
