When you want to augment a digital image creation onto the real world, you'll likely need to point your smart device's camera at the kind of markers found in Sony's TV Size Guide tool or on the front cover of magazines like Esquire.

"Our technology uses a combination of internal sensors in the device and image processing that continuously scans the environment the camera sees, resulting in a near reality visualization of the product using live video (and also saved scenes)," the company's Jacqui Basil explains to Gizmag.
