All the big companies like Google, Facebook, Apple are betting big on Augmented Reality. As technology it’s pretty awesome, but there is no device at present that makes the AR experience easier. Phones are an average segue to AR experience, but not desirable. Ideally a device that you can reliably wear and fits naturally as part of the experience would be great. The problem is such a device doesn’t exist today. I wish there was a such a device which would have made developing AR based breakout applications easier.
No Augmented Reality viewing device provides a great user experience.
Design a wearable for Augmented Reality that
- Fits naturally into the experience
- Provides an easy access to switching on and off the AR experience
- Is not creepy to look at. Onlookers shouldn’t feel that they are constantly being recorded or taken pictures of.
- Makes a fashion statement.
