Market Restraint

Potential Negative Effects of AR on Human Behavior May Slow Down Adoption

A study recently conducted by researchers at Stanford University found that after people had experienced augmented reality through computer-generated simulations, their behaviors and interactions changed in the physical world as well. The findings of the study revealed that subjects who were made to wear AR-powered goggles were unable to distinguish between the virtual world and the real world. According to the researchers, excessive usage of AR is likely to have a significant impact on the social-psychological interactions of people in real-world scenarios. Spreading awareness about this drawback of AR may restrict its adoption. In addition to this, many experts fear that overload of information may confuse and overwhelm the wearer, preventing quick decision-making, which will defeat the purpose of deploying augmented reality (AR) tools in organizations. These shortcomings may limit the augmented reality market growth in the upcoming years.
