With Google Glass kicking off public interest in augmented reality (although it really isn’t AR) and Microsoft Hololens grabbing the headlines now it is clear that AR has made leaps and bounds in terms of technology, cost, ergonomics and availability. This is especially true when compared to what was available just three or four years ago. As a result it is clear that AR has the potential to be used in more domains than previously thought. In particular those which were previously off limits. With prices falling rapidly, for example the current soon to be upgraded Epson Moverio BT-200 is available for just €600, AR headsets are approaching the level of being consumer products.
