“A device gives a very cheap way of viewing the image augmented and mixed reality. It may be used to view BBC content in the future. Our experiment was relatively simple, but on the horizon — new technologies that have the potential to completely change the impression of the audience from the content,” say the BBC.
However, in watching the broadcasts so there’s certain constraints allowed only certain types of images in low-lit.
