Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that integrates interactive virtual content with the physical real world, such as in the form of a digital three-dimensional visual (3D) representation, thereby augmenting the perception of reality.

If you’ve been working in account management for a while, chances are it won’t be the first year that you’ve had to politely explain that despite what Aunt Anne tells all her friends, you’re still, without a doubt, not an accountant.
