Augmented Reality Glasses – Over Hyped?
Last week I was at AR Summit in London running a panel session on augmented reality and the opportunities for developers. Of course no discussion on AR would be complete without touching on Googles AR glasses so I asked the audience who will buy Googles AR glasses when they are released. I was surprised that out of 100 or so people only 8 or 9 were actually interested. To separate the Google fanboys from the Apple crowd I asked how many in the audience would buy an AR glasses system if there were made by Apple. I was even more surprised since only about 3 people raised their hand.
Out of a 100 people the total number of potential early adopters was around 15. That’s pretty low considering how much excitement they seem to be generating.
Would you buy a pair if they hit the shelves tomorrow?
I found this, a humorous take on life for early adopters.
