Augmented reality has only just begun to revolutionize life and business as we know it.
For example, such technology allows us to superimpose sounds, images, text over real-world scenarios. In medical training for example, AR allows us to bring 3D anatomical learning. In addition, according to Fortune, AR can used by surgeons to alert them to potential risks or hazards in surgery. It can even be used to find patient veins and avoid accidentally sticking a patient far too many times.
Even Apple’s Tim Cook argues that augmented reality is “the next big thing,” adding, “I’m excited about AR. My view is that it’s the next big thing, and it will pervade our entire lives.”
Even more impressive, demand for smart glasses is set for respectable growth.
