Lately, there has been much talk of merging the physical world with the digital landscape. Augmented reality enhances one’s perception of reality by adding computer generated input to create a modified experience. Now that mobile devices are ubiquitous, augmented reality is at our fingertips nearly everywhere we go. IdentityMine loves emerging technology in the mobile world, so we decided to show five promising augmented reality applications to drool over.

1.      Marvel AR

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mobile comic book readers will be able to “look beyond the page” when pointed at a properly equipped comic. "Writers and artists now have a whole host of new tools at their disposal to redefine the comic book medium," Marvel Comics Editor in Chief Axel Alonso said at SXSW this week.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Platform: iOS

2.      Spot Crime

 

 

 

 

 

This is the first crime application we have seen that uses augmented reality technology to give a visual sense of where crime is happening. A user identifies high crime areas in the areas where they might be traveling and gets specific details of the crime events by selecting individual incidents.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Platform: iOS

3.      See Colors

 

 

 

 

 

 

Color blindness affects many people around the globe and See Colors intends to make a difference in their lives. This app will help people suffering from vision deficiency by applying filters that help with color recognition.                                Platform: Windows Phone

4.      AR Invaders

 

 

 

 

 

 

This app brings the classic alien invasion theme to real life and all you have to do is walk outside. Turn Times Square into an alien battle zone and recruit your friends to build an army in multiplayer mode. There aren’t many mobile AR games that stack up to this beast.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Platform: iOS

5.      Wikitude

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Voted “Best Augmented Reality browser" three years in a row, this nifty app displays Wikipedia information about users’ surroundings in a mobile camera view. A key feature of this app is that is also displays mobile coupons and discounts for local retailers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Platforms: iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, Symbian
