The SEI Cyber Affordance Visualization in Augmented Reality or “CAVIAR” prototype demonstrates how augmented reality could be used by soldiers to visualize cyber affordances. Affordances are opportunities presented by physical objects at the interface between individuals and the world. Cyber affordances are potential cyber actions that soldiers could take in their immediate geographical surroundings.
