Remote control instructions in AR
This app shows a pre-made layer of instructions on top of a remote control. Anyone who's ever helped their mom using the remote control knows how hard it is.
With augmented reality, we can layer anything on top of the real world, including stuff that helps moms using stuff. The layer could be animated, it could be live, or pre-recorded, or supplied by the manufacturer—or all of it, and even tailored for one specific person.
A similar approach could also change the appearance of the remote control, removing irrelevant buttons (basically 9 out of 10 of them).
Obviously, a remote control is an example, and maybe not the best example. In an AR-first world, we don't have any audio-visual devices anymore.
