How big the market for AR?

The talk about various businesses already making plans to use Augmented Reality is very inspiring for me.

We know Microvision will be well positioned in the space, although we're not sure where Microvision's display technology will ultimately be used -- or by whom.

But this kind of advance promise of adoption -- and by the numbers, is very interesting and bodes very well for the future.

Most of us probably never thought that there would be 24,000 elevator technicians working for a single elevator company. And the time they're talking about saving -- that demonstrates the potential value of these devices.

Now, it is linking with German elevators group ThyssenKrupp to attempt to transform the way that elevators are serviced globally, reducing a job that would normally take one and a half hours to about 20 minutes.

Thyssenkrupp says it has developed an application to use Microsoft HoloLens technology in its elevator service operations worldwide to empower more than 24,000 of its service technicians to do their jobs more safely and efficiently, and keep people and cities moving better than ever before.

Viewing holograms of lift motors that are linked in real time in the cloud to the controls of the machinery, they will enable remote, hands-free access to technical and expert information when on site, resulting in significant savings in time and stress.
