As AR begins to gain in popularity, our society will be forced to make certain provisions for, and restrictions on its use. This is an excellent example I found here where playing Google’s Niantic Lab’s Ingress game on┬áColorado Spring’s Schriever Air Force Base touched off a minor panic. The investigation was kicked off after a base patrol questioned a visitor who was taking pictures near the base’s 9/11 display.┬áThe result, as of this month, is that Ingress and other geo-location games like it are banned from the base. Base personnel are prohibited from playing those games or from escorting anyone onto the base to play the game. In what other scenarios do you see AR interfering with sensitive proceedings? Driving maybe? Maybe not — depends on the application.
