10 Tablet Tricks To Try

Augment Reality With Video
You've probably heard of augment reality (AR) apps, which overlay computer-generated information, such as restaurant locations, over a live view of a real-world environment. Tablets' large displays are well-suited for AR, which is still in its infancy. Aurasma is an Android and iOS app that takes AR to the next level by adding video capabilities.
How does it work? Say, for instance, you're walking down a busy urban street. You point your tablet (or smartphone) at an art gallery. Aurasma recognizes the location and immediately overlays a brief video clip that promotes the gallery's current exhibition. Think of it as reality … only enhanced.
