  1. Thank you Gary for pointing out the important detail that most news reports on the goggles missed – it is completely self contained. Without that but with the idea of cameras to overlay reality it just looked like a typical item from Apple (that would still sell well to the Apple ONLY crowd) where you pay a lot more for the Apple name on it. Comparing the price to early TVs is a bit of a stretch since the modern equivalent to those sets is well under $1000 but I would expect an Apple branded TV to be above that price point and not work well with inputs from other companies.

    As as an Industrial Engineer, the problem with using AR for workers has been that the devices have been too heavy for wear for long periods of time and/or the resolution and field of view being too small to be useful. How heavy are the goggles and what is the weight balance when they are being worn? If they would be reasonable to wear for a full work shift, they could be great for projects that have not been practical in an industrial setting.
    Having work instructions for complex assembly with critical details showing up in the field of view of the equipment being worked on with gestures to advance to the next instruction or ask for help.
    Pick To Light – having a person picking parts for kitting by seeing lights that tell what is next presently uses a lot of expensive displays for all the parts bins (hundreds to thousands) per picking station with a single headset that can also highlight the location on the parts trays where it goes for the assembly station would make the cost of the headset cheap. The independence of headset would make it able to be used by forklift drivers when they are picking larger items in a warehouse.
    If Ron( now retired) sees this, your dreams from 10 years or so ago would be finally achievable.
