When asked about google glass or other AR goggles, I have been consistent in my message:
- google glass sucked for a couple of good reasons (first iteration, hardware/software not up to snuff), and a couple of bad reasons (attempt to “exclusivize” the product with limited deployment, horrid UI/UX decisions).
- within 5 years, a significant portion of the population will be wearing something like google glass for a good part of the day.
The 2nd shoe apparently will drop in 2016, this time focused on enterprise instead of consumer. The reality is that both need to happen in concert. And there will be convergence between the display and wearable sensors. That’s when it gets really interesting, and we’ll hopefully begin to see some of that in 2016 as well.
