In order for workers to perform tasks using both of their hands while receiving the content of augmented reality (AR) experiences, they will need hardware that has heretofore not been generally available outside of testing and research labs. New, wearable products such as “smart” glasses, helmets, and headgear—specifically designed to provide enterprise AR experiences—can now be purchased for evaluation in the workplace. Unfortunately, suppliers and customers are delayed in their ability to agree on final product features due to lack of understanding of requirements and unclear benefits and tradeoffs associated with the various options.

Increased awareness of features and options—and adoption of conventions through which to convey them—will permit developers of wearable AR displays to communicate specifications clearly. This report describes the current state of the art of wearable AR display devices and informs customers about key options and enabling components by which suppliers are able to differentiate their offerings.

Customers will gain understanding about wearable AR display challenges that need to be resolved, learn how the devices are already being used in enterprise settings, and discover trends that will impact the product segment.
