Wireless Displays in Educational Augmented Reality Applications
Augmented Reality (AR) as defined by Azuma  does not pose restrictions on output devices to be used for AR. Starting with light-weight notebooks and ultra mobile PCs, recently smartphones became favorite AR output devices. They represent a class of self contained computing units, providing (usually limited) computing power as well as input and output peripherals – all in one device.
