WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
Virtual Reality (VR) is a great idea but very difficult to do well because you have to generate a whole new world. Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed-Reality (MR) offer a greater potential because it superposes useful information onto the real world. That is the promise and we will see with ideas like this, huge promises and a great deal of hype in the coming months and year. Brace yourself for the weirdests ideas and expect most to fail.
But keep the faith in the basic idea that AR-MR will revolutionize your life and represent a technology/device/solution that will most probably become as pervasive as fast as the smartphone has with the advent of the iPhone. Because it will be useful.
