The market for head mounted displays is anticipated to witness upsurge, primarily contributed by the demand from consumer space.

The introduction of wearable computing glasses has completely revolutionized the head mounted industry by expanding applications beyond the traditional aviation and tactical/ground segments.

Initially, head mounted display units were specifically positioned as defense avionics. Since human beings are not accustomed to wear or carry bulky things, the manufacturers including Sony Corporation, Vuzix Corporation, Kopin Corporation, eMagin Corporation, and Oculus VR LLC among others have come up with light-weight head mounted display prototypes.

The development has enabled manufacturers to also position head mounted display as a consumer product. The advancements in display technologies and other capabilities including superior computer graphic interface and three dimensional view have made head mounted displays popular in the consumer space.

The use of HMDs in video gaming and other consumer applications (entertainment) has increased significantly in the recent years. The technological advancements resulting in improved features and capabilities including high definition 3D view, light weight, superior resolution, computational power, and internet connectivity provide consumers a hands free, large screen experience giving them a sensation of the real world. In addition, the invention of new optical designs such as waveguide eyepieces reduces the bulky display optics in front of the user's eyes. This makes HMDs light in weight allowing wearer flexibility in head movement.

With the advent of virtual and augmented reality technologies, the head mounted display (HMD) market has gained significant traction in the consumer space. Low cost see-through technologies employed in the display units have resulted in greater use of HMDs in consumer augmented reality applications. Many HMD manufacturers have complemented their product line with the augmented reality prototypes.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
