AR Visors in Engineering, Science and Medicine

Engineers and scientists use Augmented Reality Visors to provide stereoscopic views of CAD schematics. These systems are also used in the maintenance of complex systems, as they can give a technician what is effectively "x-ray vision" by combining computer graphics such as system diagrams and imagery with the user's natural vision.

There are also applications in surgery. A combination of radiographic data (CAT scans and MRI imaging) can be combined with the surgeon's natural view of the operation.

An early Augmented Reality Visor prototype was KARMA (Knowledge-based Augmented Reality for Maintenance Assistance) to show simple end-user instructions for how to repair and service a laser printer by using a ghost image on the real background.
