Canon visor and wand gives you control of augmented reality

Last week we showed you a system that paired a glove with an iPad to offer controllable augmented reality objects. Now we've discovered a similar, but totally unique take on the same dynamic created by Canon called the Mixed Reality System.

The system employs the use of a head mounted display and a wand-like device that allows the wearer to control and interact with a three-dimensional object situated in augmented reality. Canon's demonstration of the set-up focuses on showing a team of designers and engineers using the system to design cars, but the company also hopes to use the system for medical purposes and interactive displays.

Although the system is for sale, Canon hasn't announced pricing, but you can see video of the Mixed Reality system in action here.
