One of the biggest issues AR/VR has faced to date is how it looks. Apple have tried to overcome this by tying the AR technology to the device instead of a wearable, for now.
It seems inevitable that it’s going to have to go wearable at some point. Google made a mess of the whole concept with Glass, but maybe if it looks like this, people might go for it?
