You've either heard of Pokemon Go or Iron Man, and you look at both of them and think 'What has this got to do with me... this stuff is for kids.. or billionaire techies'. How can we illustrate and excite people about the real practical possibilities enabled by AR?
Avraham worked in AR for a couple years, first on designing the interface for AR glasses at Meta.
