What is layar?

Free mobile app which allows the addition of layers of augmented reality, using the smartphone’s camera to display digital information in real time superimposed onto the real images being captured. These layers of digital information can provide information on nearby cash-machines, restaurants, public transport or tourist routes, inter alia.

In practice, the phone screen displays what is being captured by the camera and then includes additional content in real time, so that users see the real world around them, but with superimposed information. Layar uses the GPS receiver and the compass built into telephones to locate the user.
