What are the consequences of mobility for augmented reality? This paper explores some of the issues that I believe will be raised by the development and future commonplace adoption of mobile, wearable, augmented reality systems. These include: social influences on tracking accuracy, the importance of appearance and comfort, an increase in collaborative applications, integration with other devices, and implications for personal privacy.
