AR differs from Virtual Reality, which is a fully artificial environment, in that most of what the user observes is the natural environment with only the necessary information overlayed. Examples of AR include the Head-up display in the latest vehicles, that project speed onto the windscreen, or Google Glasses.

Continuous Integration (CI) is a practice in software development where developers merge, test and deploy the code they have written on a frequent basis.

CI falls within part of the software process known as Developer Operations typically referred to as DevOps.
