Augmented reality is a far-reaching subject and application stretching from simple entertainment such as Pokemon, to life or death first responders and tele-medicine. AR apparatus spans from smartphones, to smart glasses, from HUDs to helmets for pilots and emergency workers. Everyone will use AR from consumers of all ages to professionals of all industries. At the CVC conference, Dr. Peddie focused on consumer smart glasses and discussed the technical challenges and social implications of everyone wearing smart glasses. Peddie believes AR glasses, worn as easily as we now wear prescription and sun glasses, will make the world a safer place.
