Hello Laura,

I don't think that augmented reality ( here a simple example: ) should be considered as another frontier of simulation (except in a technological and commercial sense), but as another level. Some sort of metasimulation ;-)

In the way AR works - you get the information in particular positions/situations - they have something in common with holography, in which the image depends on the observer's viewpoint (it is not a case that some AR applications, especially in 3D graphics, are named "holograms"). Of course they are not holograms, since the technique they are made is totally different!
