 ☞ Dialogue

[대화 주제]


A: I heard you went to Sok-cho last weekend. So, did you catch any pokemon?
B: What pokemon? Is that still a fad?
A: Hey, I will be so excited to catch even one pokemon since I've never seen one before.
B: It’s called Augmented Reality. It has a huge potential to develop.
A: Augmented Reality? What’s that? Is it like Virtual Reality?
B: Virtual Reality shows a digitally-created world like in online games, whereas Augmented Reality shows a supplemented environment over the real world through smartphones or other glasses such as Google’s.
A: Ah.. Are you talking about something similar to the people in some sci-fi movies who wear glasses to see other people’s private information or location? Sounds awesome!
B: Not necessarily. You should be concerned that the streets could be full of junk ads once everyone wears those glasses.
A: Yeah.. Like most websites are covered with ads these days.
B: Augmented Reality in our everyday lives will happen in the not-too-distant future.
