Podcast # 52 – ‘Bunnies in Newspapers,’ and Augmented Reality’s Functional Future – with Trak Lord of Metaio (Podcast #52)

Augmented Reality Might Hit ‘Blue Collar’ First – with Augmate CEO Pete Wassell

There's a lot of talk about Augmented Reality, and when it might become "mainstream." Many leading experts believe that workers who are in front of "screens" all day (office and desk workers) might not be the first to be immersed in augmeted reality – it might just be the mechanic and the warehouse worker wearing headsets and seeing holographic displays in front of them. Augmate CEO Pete Wassell talks about his predictions.
