Course Overview (electronic music) Hi this is Jon Flanders of Pluralsight. This course is called Getting Started with Augmented Reality. I thought the best way to start would be to show some augmented reality. The reality is my living room ceiling. The augmented part is a picture of the first slide of this course. Now the particular technology I'm using allows me to do things like a gesture and show something like a 3D Model of the Pluralsight logo. I can also do another gesture and show a 3D Model of my face. I think this is a good example to get us started. And so let's dive in more about augmented reality.
