One of the projects I'm working on for my day job involves the use of virtual reality. I still see VR and AR (collectively, XR) as niche applications, certainly for now, and probably for the forseeable future. This article mentions some augmented reality (AR) applications, such as "Opensight, a Microsoft AR-enhanced medical imaging product, which allows clinicians to overlay scans onto the patient and interact with the data in 3D. Similarly, Tradiebot developed an AR app for car mechanics that overlays the repair steps onto the physical car." Price is a factor in the limited adoption (I still cannot afford my own VR viewer), as are the limits on applications.
