You can now use Augmented Reality (AR) as a perfect tool to quickly grab visuals from the real world and paste them into digital documents, a developer Cyril Diagne has shown using an impressive, futuristic demonstration on Twitter.
The simple video Cyril has posted shows him point his phone at what he wants to copy in real life and drag it over to his laptop. No fiddling around emailing images to yourself or cutting out objects in Photoshop

Although this is only a research prototype right now, you can probably expect to see tools like this on your mobile phone in the near future.
Over the past few years, companies like Apple and Google have started implementing AR-related features into their mobile software.
