 New technologies continuously emerge that change the nature of work and human lifestyles in dramatic ways. We see Augmented Reality (AR), Wearable Technology, and more specifically Body Area Networks (BAN) as particularly life-changing solutions to many human problems. As with many new innovations, some of these are problems we do not even realize we have at present. 
   
 In 2014, approximately 864 million mobile phones will be AR-ready, and in excess of 100 million vehicles will come equipped with AR technologies of various types. We believe that there is enormous potential for AR applications in many fields including education, healthcare, industrial applications, and the automotive industry. 
   
 We see several factors converging to facilitate wearable technology...
