Augmented Reality (AR) is the term applied to computer generated content that is inserted into live, real-world environments. The PS Vita handles this technical wizardry by reading information from AR Cards through its cameras and rendering an interactive scene based on the data. Each card triggers a different game, and on the PS Vita, these are made accessible by the AR Play app. Games include:
Table Soccer: Turn any flat surface into a soccer match that can be joined by friends in ad-hoc mode.
Cliff Diving: Use the AR Cards to install diving boards in the real world and watch Diver Dan take the plunge.
Fireworks: Create a light show wherever you want, and tap away for big explosions and points in the built-in minigame.
