AR HKPOLYU Followup 1 (HMDs)

This is the first of several posts related to the two workshops and two presentations that I recently gave at Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

(The second post is here.)

Discussions with attendees, combined with research, made it clear that HMDs (wearables) are already a significant market, and moving fast. No need to hold anything, when your eyeglasses are computers. Mobile phones are outdated.!?

To keep up with the latest developments, the following are highly recommended:

The Ghost Howls

ARIA (Augmented Reality in Action)

and a Youtube Channel called Augmented Reality in Education.

The sales projections in the following report don't feel right to me. For one thing, I don't think it is a good idea to lump the two together. 19 MAR 2018 Demand for Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality Headsets Expected to Rebound in 2018, Says IDC

At 5:50 there is an example of a very large amount of data being displayed within a HMD. Undoubtedly there are newer and better ways to display very large amounts of data.

Here is the next post, featuring the works of students from Purdue University (U.S.A), Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and the School of Interactive and Digital Media at Nanyang Polytechnic in Singapore.
