Augmented reality is in a transitional phase, and there are a few interesting problems that prevent the technology from overlaying digital information precisely enough over the physical world to be useful in situations where precision is tantamount to success.
Motion-to-photon latency is one such vexing issue. This occurs on inside-out tracking AR headsets such as the Microsoft HoloLens. To offset latency to indiscernible levels, a technique known as visual-inertial fusion must be incorporated into the user experience.
