    Oh bob-off, would ya... What a load of tosh.

    It's cool tech, but like driver-less cars, we're at least a decade off it being being mainstream (possibly 2 - depending on how many more people die in that first decade).

    Forget the mainstream, like most 'super sci fi' technologies this is something that will roll out in industry before it gets cheap enough for consumer sale. Same happened for VR, same for self-driving vehicles (common in mining), same for smartphones (PDAs, anyone?), and AR will go the same way. That's why Hololens and Google Glass have pivoted to direct sales to Enterprise, rather than letting consumers even try buying them (we saw the wave of FUD that resulted from unrestricted Google Glass sales that resulted from that).
