It was only a few years ago that the promise of augmented reality was just that: a promise. That’s no longer the case. Augmented reality has gone from being a proof-of-concept buzzword to an actual thing you can use in your daily life. However, like any technology with revolutionary potential, there are issues with augmented reality that we need to address if we want it to thrive in the long run. In this article, I’ll cover four limitations of AR and how we can work around them.

Limitations Of Augmented Reality: The End Of Reality

Augmented Reality Is Limited By The Device You’re Using

The first thing you need to understand is that not all devices are the same. Different devices have different capabilities, and not all of them can handle the same tasks. For example, if your phone has a smaller screen than someone else’s tablet, then you might have trouble seeing some of their augmented reality features.

This also means that there may be times when you’re using an AR app on your phone but another person who has a different device is also using it–and they don’t see what you see! The same goes for other kinds of interactions: if one person has an expensive device while another person doesn’t, this could limit what they can do together with Augmented Reality (AR).

Augmented Reality Is Limited By The Environment You’re In

Augmented reality is limited by the environment you’re in. If you’re in a place that doesn’t have enough light, or if it’s too bright to see your screen properly, then augmented reality won’t work as well. Similarly, if there are too many things around that obstruct your view of the screen (e.g., other people), then this will also affect how well augmented reality works for you.

You might also have noticed that some apps work better than others when it comes to using Augmented Reality–this is because some developers have made more effort than others when designing their apps’ functionality with AR in mind; so while one app may offer a lot more features than another app does on paper (and vice versa), what matters most is how well those features are implemented within each respective app/game/etcetera…

Augmented Reality Can Be A Part Of Our Future, But It’s Not The Only Way To Experience The World

Augmented Reality is not the only way to experience the world. It’s just one of many, and it has its limitations.

Augmented Reality has been around for decades, but it wasn’t until smartphones came along that AR became a mainstream technology. Nowadays, we can use apps like Pokémon Go or Snapchat filters to overlay graphics onto our surroundings in real time–it gives us an enhanced view of reality (or at least an augmented version).

But there are limitations: The device you’re using limits what kind of experiences you can have with AR; if your phone doesn’t have good GPS capabilities or enough processing power to handle rendering complex graphics quickly enough, then your experience may be poor or even non-existent!

Augmented reality is a great way to enrich our world, but it’s not going to be the only way we experience things.

Augmented reality is a great way to enrich our world, but it’s not going to be the only way we experience things.

We will still need to experience the world in person and interact with other people. We’ll still have experiences that are not virtual, like hiking through the forest or cooking dinner together as a family. There are many other ways technology can help us enrich our lives–like helping us stay fit by tracking our steps throughout the day!


Augmented reality is a great way to enrich our world, but it’s not going to be the only way we experience things. We have so many other ways to experience life, from books and movies to video games and virtual reality. The fact that AR can be done on any device with a camera just makes it even more accessible than ever before!
