These tours would force users to leave the house and experiment with the technology. For example, a movie studio could organize and advertise a temporary tour through social media in which characters from an upcoming film are displayed around town.

Additionally, temporary digital POIs could be displayed in unique areas.

Pokemon Go is the best example of AR getting people to leave the house. Users could track down virtual treasure chests using their smart glasses.

Meanwhile, King Kong could be displayed atop the Empire State Building during the April 7th anniversary of the 1933 film’s release date.

Furthermore, interesting facts could be displayed alongside buildings or atop public art.

Ultimately, whether permanent or temporary, AR Tours could educate users while also injecting fun into their lives.

Moreover, these virtual trips will give users a sense of community. Like bonding with a co-worker over the fact you’ve both visited Italy, smart glass wearers could revel in the shared experience of seeing a digital Batman - overlooking the city from a nearby perch.
