Augmented Reality:Linking Ikea’s advertising to education?

I have posted previous blogs on augmented reality  (when the view of reality is augmented by computer generated sensory input in real time), but, did you know that companies such as Ikea are using AR for advertising? The lego augmented reality video has been around for a while but the Ikea augmented reality shopping experience is rather recent. Even though Ikea embraced the concept several years ago they have recently released their first AR (augmented reality) 2013 catalog.  The video below is pretty neat. When do you think we will see this technology being using with our students’ text books? Or will text books be obsolete altogether and replaced with electronic versions? How log do you think it will be until our students will be creating their own AR resources as an assignment tool? I’m personally looking forward to the end of  PowerPoint presentations!
