Welcome to Episode 004 – Rise of the Augmented Reality Robot.

We remember the movie Terminator, where a cyborg assassin programmed to kill travels back in time from 2029 to 1984.  Arnold Schwarzenegger plays the Augmented Reality hyped-machine that needs to assassinate Sarah Connor, the link to the rise of the human resistance which fights back against a world-gone-bad with machines.

Unless you live in a cave, are a Sudoku addict, or are repulsed by Mashable or Wired magazine, then you are missing some incredible changes in technology lately.

There are some amazing newsworthy items and developments that you will not want to miss on Augmented Reality Dirt.
