While virtual reality or VR continues to ramp up the hype, a slightly related technology is also starting to rev up its engines. Augmented reality is that other movement that is trying to bring technology closer to our eyes, quite literally too. But unlike VR, AR has a significantly more ambitious goal. Or rather, it is what proponents like Microsoft and Meta are trying to shape it into. Augmented reality could effectively revolutionize how we do computing in the future, replacing monitors and some forms of input with more "natural" counterparts. But while that might be easy for our eyes to take in, our hands might have a harder time adjusting.
