Potential of Augmented Reality Greater than you Think

Interesting article.

No one company will own the space, but many will cooperate and there will be interdependencies.

Near eye displays will be required -- as well as projection for sharing.


Today, standard market projections focus on how AR will become smaller and faster, or they extrapolate on how existing capabilities could impact the enterprise once implemented. However, past technology disruptions demonstrate that this view is too narrow, and doesn't consider the impact of converging technologies—for example, in the way mobile technology has converged with the internet.
Augmented reality (and to some extent, virtual reality as well) is on a collision course with other emerging exponential technologies—for example, the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing and machine learning, to name a few. Businesses that prepare themselves to capture the value that can unfold when they converge are more likely to find themselves as industry leaders in the resulting economy.
