Use Cases for Augmented Reality

2016 was the year of Virtual Reality. Now it seems like 2017 might be the year of Augmented Reality. Facebook has announced their belief in the technology. Microsoft has been working on their HoloLens technology for a while already. Even Snapchat is trying to incorporate Augmented Reality into their offerings.

There are many players out there starting to emerge with AR technology, but most of the usage of AR today is pretty lame. Or at least not very useful for anything else than a cheap laugh. Dog ears and rainbows are not what is innovative and exciting about AR.
