Augmented Reality

Does anyone know what the most common way to say "augmented reality" in Mandarin? 增强现实 (lit. strengthened reality)? 扩增实境(lit. expanded and reality-enhancing glasses)?

It's something I find really interesting, and I'd like to talk about it in Mandarin with friends. Microsoft came out with a new AR kinda helmet thingy. Pretty fancy!

Maybe AR could be the subject of a new podcast?

Love what you guys are doing with the place - regardless of who owns it, it always seems to get more fascinating! Maybe that has a little bit to do with the fact that my Mandarin has been improving a lot lately, though. Haha!

I love how computer nerds describe computer-produced images as 'reality'.
