Definition: AR headset

(Augmented Reality headset) A head-worn apparatus that allows wearers to view images superimposed onto the real environment. AR headsets such as Microsoft's HoloLens cover the eyes. Headsets similar to Google Glass, which was the first example of this variety, are like eyeglasses and much less intrusive. See Google Glass, AR/VR headset, augmented reality, smart glasses and Windows Mixed Reality.

Less and More Immersive
Headsets like the earlier Google Glass (top) are lightweight in contrast to Microsoft Hololens (bottom), which offers a more immersive experience. (Bottom image courtesy of Microsoft Corporation.)
