Augmented reality: enterprise or consumer technology

Innovation starts to become a market reality when it’s no longer in the news. Everyone remembers the fuss made by Google Glass between 2013 and 2015. And what happened about all this noise? Google just folded down its Google Glass, and … nothing more. Now time has passed and Augmented Reality (AR) is getting closer to mainstream.

For instance, Vuzix introduces its AR glasses for both the enterprise and the consumer market.

Maybe one of the most striking topics this year, in Duncan Stewart speech, is that while the smartphones were launched just 10 years ago, their penetration now reaches 85% of adult population in developed countries and is anticipated to reach 90% by 2023.
