I'm reading A Pilot Study of the Effectiveness of Augmented Reality to Enhance the Use of Remote Labs in Electrical Engineering Education. There is an interesting conceptual diagram about the placement of augmented reality along the spectrum of real to virtual world spectrum.
I am not seeing the connection between AR and Virtual though. If there are no real world components isn't it all virtual? Or could it be in a sense like a situation in a completely virtual world like Second Life or World of Warcraft where you can see other players avatars and chose whether to see their names float above their heads. In a sense those floating names are still just virtual. In my mind AR enhances real world stuff rather than being an additional virtual layer.
