Created to help in factory mass production, BMW is tapping into one of the original uses of Augmented Reality. The mechanic receives additional three-dimensional information on the engine he is repairing, for example, to help him in diagnosing and solving the fault. Apart from the real environment, he sees virtually animated components, the tools to be used and hears instruction on each of the working steps through headphones integrated inside the goggles. I see this use of AR sky rocketing as the technology advances.
