Nowadays, there is new technology such as augmented reality and virtual reality that starting to get attention from many parties especially in mobile gaming industry. This technology brings elements of the virtual world into the real world by enhancing what users see, hear and feel. All these elements are augmented by computer generated sensory input such as, sound, video, graphics or GPS data. Augmented and virtual reality also supported in many fields for example, education, design, reconnaissance, maintenance and etc. This paper review the field of Augmented Reality, including a brief definition, the problems, the inventing technologies and their characteristics. Besides, it will also discuss some recent application of as well as the limitations in the use of thesetechnology
