“Disruptive technologies are those that significantly alter the way businesses or entire industries operate. Often times, these technologies force companies to alter the way they approach their business, or risk losing market share or becoming irrelevant.”

Oren Etzioni

``The mechanical loom and the calculator have shown us that technology is both disruptive and filled with opportunities. But it would be hard to find a decent argument that we would have been better off without these inventions.``

Steve Blank

``The introduction of new technology is always disruptive to existing markets, particularly to content/copyright owners who sell through well-established distribution channels.``

Augmented Reality:

Changing How We See the World

“Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with the user’s environment in real time. Unlike virtual reality, which creates a totally artificial environment, augmented reality uses the existing environment and overlays new information on top of it.” ~ Whatis

According to recent research by Lumus Vision, while AR video games are expected to reach potential revenues of $11.6 billion by 2025, other industries are not far behind. By 2025, the AR and virtual reality space in the health-care industry is predicted to reach $5.1 billion, engineering $4.7 billion, real estate $2.6 billion and retail $1.6 billion.
