Augmented Reality (AR) HMD Spec Comparison

Augmented reality HMDs augment your view of the real world by projecting data or 3D objects onto your field of view. Data can be overlaid and move with your view, or objects can appear to interact with and be part of the real world. The latter is sometimes referred to as cinematic or holographic reality.
