Subject: Re: [arip] Groups - Technical Communicators, Get ready: Here comes Augmented Reality! uploaded

Hello Scott and Rhonda, 

I have read the draft of the article. It is well crafted to communicate to technical communicators their potential roles in AR development and introduction. 

Where did you say this will be published?

I have a few comments to offer.

1. In my opinion, it is incorrect and very misleading (in fact, it is detrimental to people’s understanding of Augmented Reality) to include this as an example of Augmented Reality:

We see it on the TV screen during football games as the superimposed yellow first down marker. 

Please remove it. 

If you would like more background on the reasons for this recommendation, I invite you to carefully read the experts’ analyses of the first down & 10 which I compiled based on a thread on the AR Community discussion mailing list in February 2013.

2. In the paper you say “superimposes virtual content”   I would drop the word “virtual” in this statement. 

Augmented Reality systems just superimpose content, such as images, audio or video [YOU LEFT OUT A HIGHLY VALUABLE TYPE OF CONTENT: TEXT!!!] on top of the real world object or scene.

3. In the paper I’m not clear why the “E” in Enterprise is capitalized in this statement: 
Benefits of AR in the Enterprise recorded … 

4. In the examples in the following section, you state that Boeing uses AR in wing assembly. Actually, I don’t think this is an accurate statement. Certainly it is an incomplete statement. Wing assembly was the use case for a study that Iowa State University performed, but Boeing’s use cases are highly varied and the statement makes it seem like (compared with Mitsubishi) Boeing only uses AR for one use case. 

I would make this into a table and generalize the use cases: Assembly support, Repair support, Training, etc. and then pick one or two examples that you call out in a sidebar.

Warm regards,
