Or open a wedding cake to see the filling Small firms are giving customers the chance to do just that and more—using augmented reality. Big businesses, of course, are starting to use the technology, as well. But the tool can be especially powerful for smaller firms on tighter budgets.

More than 100,000 spectators sipped champagne at the ribbon-cutting of the restored Quincy Market, transformed from a tattered wholesale marketplace into a cosmopolitan consumer magnet.
