Ever since I had the chance at a University Lab to “fix an engine” (not really, but I was able to try on the glasses and see how a virtual overlay could easily show me how to do many things) I’ve been excited about the potential of augmented reality. A few years later, we are getting past the initial experiments (remember Google Goggles? not Glass!) and the possibilities are really exciting. “Augmented reality allows us to put objects in the hands of our students that would have previously been impossible.” Explanation and a good article at Getting Smart.
