Although it looks like science fiction, this sort of augmented reality will be mainstream in a short while. There are obviously some fantastic opportunities for technical communicators, but on the same hand, there are enormous pressures and challenges. We have to be careful that we don’t push new techniques or technologies into the “too hard” basket; we need to embrace and promote these things to stake our claim as the best people to create new forms of content.
