This paper advocates the use of the Augmented Reality (AR) as a gateway to allow humans to become an active part inside the Internet of Things (IoT). This technology mixture changes the IoT from its classical pattern, a network of smart objects intercommunicating mostly without us, to an environment of exchanging information where we detain the power to understand, react and amend our surroundings. The first section is a presentation of the general concepts concerning the IoT and AR. The next sub-chapter will refer to some examples of the combined use of AR and IoT already operational. The third paragraph will present the implementation of a teaching application mixing AR & IoT to obtain a better student’s access to information. Concluding remarks, containing the authors’ opinion on the future development trends in this field of research, will be added at the end
