AR headset

(Augmented Reality headset) A head-worn apparatus that allows viewers to see images superimposed onto the real environment. Headsets similar to the Google Glass variety are like eyeglasses but much less intrusive. AR headsets like Microsoft's HoloLens cover the eyes and are more immersive. See AR/VR headset, augmented reality, Google Glass and Windows Mixed Reality.
