Augmented reality might cause someone to misjudge the speed of oncoming traffic, miscalculate reaction time, and mistakenly disregard the dangers of navigating in the real world. Until something terrible happens, you won't realize you are at risk of being harmed. Augmented reality may be unfortunate for you, but it can work for a fighter pilot. The difference is that an aircraft heads up display generally reveals information in a minimalistic and simplistic fashion.

There are very few texts for them to interpret, and no images of people. Pilots go through extensive training to be able to decipher the information at a much faster pace. Also, augmented reality wearables (the equipment you wear, such as glasses) can impair your vision. The degradation of the focus used for central vision is so poor that designers of these wearables carefully avoid blocking it.

Augmented Reality, often abbreviated AR, is cool because it can create an illusion to the person and the world around them. It allows the surrounding around the person to be altered. However, with that, there are a number of dangers that can go along with it. One of them is the overload of information.

When we have too much information at once, it can lead to stress and inaction in a user. Along with that, augmented reality can impair the perception of what is really going on around them. Augmented reality can also distract people around them. Being distracted is a danger in itself because it can lead to an accident.
