I’m a firm believer in the future of AR and I think it has the potential to be as revolutionary as the internet. Amir Bozorgzadeh writes along similar lines about the ‘AR Cloud.’
The AR Cloud allows the real, physical, world and all of the otherwise mundane objects scattered throughout it to animate seamlessly with meaning and imagination, and AR itself becomes the interface that allows us to intuitively navigate the new layers of reality.
This is why I think Apple should release an augmented reality headset. If you want AR to be a casual tool, then do what you’re already doing and keep it confined to the iPhone. But if you want AR to be a second layer of reality, it needs glasses. No one wants to constantly hold a phone in front of their face.
