I am interested in seeing a poll of what would most likely be the marketing strategy of a successful launch of a future augmented reality headset.

I don't think there will be a single "killer app".  Rather, the combined utility of multiple different apps and services will make people feel dumb and weak if they don't keep them on their person at all times -- like how people feel weaker and anxious when they realize they left their smartphone at home.

 

Any particular service might only need be used once a week or once a month; but if AR glasses offer dozens of them, at least one will get used at least once per day.

 

What kinds of services?:

 

* Immediate translation of signs in a foreign language.

 

* Directions with arrows pointing to the destination.

 

* Night vision.

 

* Ability to magnify a portion of the field of view ("zoom in 10x.")

 

* Question-answering about the scene -- e.g. "What time does this restaurant open?"

 

* Immediate price-comparison of objects you are viewing in a store.

 

* Warning when you are walking into a high-crime area.

 

And the list goes on and on.  The glasses could be paired with an assistant that tries to anticipate what services you might be interested in, based on your web search history, and then would suggest them to you.

This made me realize just how completely dystopic augmented reality headsets are for general recreational use. They're just completely not worth it.

But it's an interesting topic of discussion. I rate you 3 stars.

agreed. the uses are endless and i think it will certainly become a reality.

black mirror certainly explores the topic and more. i love the show.

 

the uses of the modern day cell phone if postulated years ago would appear recreational as well and now we can't live without them. thus will be the case with the augmented reality headset

 

i rate you 3 stars for rating me. thanks.

With augmented reality every wall could become a screen, every road could be lit up, the sky could be green or yellow. Instead of buying pets, virtual ones could be adopted. Sadly, touch and smell aren't simulated, but if they were it could have the ability to be indistinguishable from reality. But in such a case I'd rather be in a virtual simulation, as "real" world limitations don't exist in the virtual world.

I voted in the poll, but honestly, there isn't a single "killer app" that would convince me to buy AR glasses. I would buy them if they were much cheaper and better than they are now. A key improvement that must be made is an increase in the size of the virtual display. When I tried on Google Glass several years ago, I was disappointed by how small the virtual display area was. It needs to be able to fill up at least half of the wearer's field of view to be useful. 

 

Give it another decade.

I'd be very interested in AR glasses that had night vision. The simplest system would use infrared active illumination, in which an LED light embedded in the front of the glasses would emit infrared light (invisible to humans), the glasses' photosensor would be able to see it, and the resulting moving image would be displayed across the wearer's field of view. Many nighttime surveillance cameras operate on this principle. 

 

A slightly more advanced night vision device would use a highly sensitive photosensor to intensify ambient light visible, and display that to the wearer. Perhaps a more detailed composite image could be made by combining that image with the image generated by the active IR technique.

If I were mining asteroids in space with AR I could use some time of scanner systems/nanobots to analyse the elemental composition of asteroids and have the information projected on the AR screen pointing to the asteroids so I know which ones are worth mining

infrared capability, binocular and telephoto lens, augmented lighting at night, assisting with jobs and military, such as the identification of hidden mines and hidden forces in jungles etc. these are all great uses. i like the ability to look at anyone you are focused on and via retina/ face detection, you can automatically know anything through social network identification. your field of vision can give you a quick summary of whatever you want upon meeting the person. i suppose there would be a delay after the handshake while you read the info!

Personal Use:

Powerful data visualization tools/conventions no more difficult for "lay people" to use than excel but with the power of an extra dimension.

 

Tools to rapidly create AR representations for any space, with datasets for different uses accumulate over time to hold large amount of value.

 

Power User Interface that works on the principles of headset. 

 

Always recording, self data organizing memory aid.  Basic features: text search via OCR/Voice recognition, search via space/time association, object search (where was my keys last seen?) via image recognition, integration into the larger computing platform.

 

Organizational Use:

AR-Camera driven "task assignment" system: aka Manna https://marshallbrain.com/manna1.htm but with added senses of camera and added communication of visual cues.  Integration with visual object recognition and automatic evaluation of event states is necessary.

 

Tasks that involve dynamic, complex location information, for example warfighting.  (and similar tasks like firefighting, SAR in hazardous terrain)
