The information contained in the app boxes will travel from the smart phone to a new extend beyond the realm of our imagination – to the real world. The word Augemnt really means enhances reality. The information will be displayed in the walls that surround us, the groceries we buy from the market, the signals we saw in the road and even in our dress. There are so many movies like Iron Man, Minority report etc has been portraying some of these technology. As you know that Google glass is using this technology and may be in the coming years, we do not have to look on our phone or take phone out of our pocket to take the call.

Word Lens is a real time translator that uses this augmenting technology. The traditional and typical online translators show translated words when the user type a word in it or a sentence. Word Lens will capture the picture from the external world using your smartphone camera and translate it in real time. So if you are going to an Indian restaurant with menu in Hindi and you do not know Hindi, don’t worry, just take out your phone, open word lens and here the menu is in your mother tongue.

The Dark Knight Rises Z+
The Dark Knight Rises Z+ is an augmented app developed by Simmer who was the composer for the dark knight rises. What he wanted was to capture all the sounds and noises in the external world and augment it using this app. Therefore, the user will feel that he is with Batman fighting battles and celebrating victories in Gotham City. After installing the app, just put your headphones in the smartphone port and walk around. The apps will detain the external sounds, augment it and you could hear augmented sounds through the headphone. I can assure you that this app is amazing. You will feel that the sounds are travelling from your left ear to right ear and vice versa. It costs you 300 rupees.
The Dark Knight Rises Z+ : give some boost
As the word suggests augment, extend the imaginations of user. Let me give an example. You want to buy a refrigerator to your house and you are confused that whether it will fit in the house. So just click on the app and it will show how your future refrigerator looks like if it installed in your house. You can also transport this conceptual refrigerator anywhere in the world using augment. Try not to buy everything, ok?
