Augmented Reality. Well, when is it already!
Google glassdidn't survive! Well, when will something like this appear. Look here ...
Leap Motion developers have proposed a more unusual interface concept for augmented reality. They created an application that displays virtual wearable devices through augmented reality glasses. For example, it can display a panel with text and interactive buttons that can be “pulled” from the palm of your hand, if necessary.

Leap Motion showed a prototype of an augmented reality system that allows you to display virtual interfaces, such as buttons or panels with text, on the user's hands. On the development drew attention to the blog prosthetic knowledge.
Unlike virtual reality, the technology of augmented reality implies that the user sees the real world on which virtual objects are superimposed using glasses or a smartphone. Many developers offer to use augmented reality for realistic games, but others believe that it can be used to conveniently display any information.
Since this technology is at the beginning of its development, there is no single view on how exactly information can be displayed in augmented reality, and the developers offer different interface concepts. For example, the startup Magic Leap is developing AR-glasses, which, among other things, will be able to “zaprpelyat” on the walls virtual panels, similar to televisions.
The application works on the modified Meta 2 augmented reality glasses, on which the company's sensor is fixed, which tracks the user's position with great accuracy. It can in real time create a three-dimensional model of the hands, taking into account the position of all joints. The calculations necessary for the operation of the application are performed on a computer connected to the glasses.
There are many other concepts and prototypes of augmented reality systems for displaying useful information. For example, the Canadian company Searidge Technologies is developing a system that will allow air traffic controllers to see information about flights they control in a convenient form. There are also working prototypes of augmented reality medical systems that display the structure of the internal organs of patients directly on their body.
