There are no practical applications yet for AR - your mum isn't using it to navigate a grocery store - but AR has become wildly popular in the tech community. Slap AR on a pitch and get some VC funding. Or slap AR on the side of a product and bask in the AR buzz from tech publications. Bose, a company known for nice headphones and not nice user interfaces or computers, is the latest to embrace AR. Today it announced a plan to fund AR startups through the new Bose Ventures, but more importantly, it announced a platform that includes AR glasses and, Bose hopes, a new way to interact with AR content - and thus your world.
