Augmented Reality is real-life modification of an environment through use of technology. More specifically, it is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
Augmented Reality plays a pivotal role in many parts of life in Neo-Paris. Everything from shopping, safety warnings, explanations, store signs, advertisements, personal descriptions, directions, actions, utilities, and combat use some form of augmented reality.
Augmented Reality plays a somewhat odd role in combat. The first instance in which Augmented Reality has a clear offensive use is in Nilin Cartier-Wells's fight with Kid X-Mas. Kid X-Mas made use of a Sensen interactive Augmented Reality landscape that resembled a fighting arena inside of a stadium. Similarly, the Spammer], using Augmented Reality, has a physical effect on its victim's Senwall.
Similarly, the Junk Bolt, created by Headache Tommy, can weaken physical structures outside of of Augmented Reality. It is never explicitly explained how the Junk Bolt is able to affect non-digital physical objects.
As per defensive capabilities, what could be a sort of Augmented Reality, is the C3 shield the Heavy Enforcers, Heavy Prison Enforcers and the Heavy Elite Enforcers. The C3 Shield seems to run on the same principles as the Spammer, but only activates when someone else hits it instead of it hitting a target.
