CastAR envisions a world where augmented reality is for the whole family

Technical Illusions' vision for its alternate reality/virtual reality headset CastAR is the subject of the latest video from the company.

CastAR, which differs from Oculus and Google Glass by beaming out a miniatual virtual reality that can be interacted with in the real world, is shown being used for urban planning, video games and as a virtual desktop.

It's worth pointing out that it isn't yet clear whether these ideas can be replicated in real-life. Check it out for yourself in the video below.

The CastAR Kickstarter campaign launched in 2013 to raise funds for glasses that will project 3D images onto reflective surfaces, a controller called the Magic Wand and an accompanying software development kit. You can check out our earlier coverage of the device to see Technical Illusions' pitch in motion. The project surpassed its funding goal of $400,000, reaching a whopping $1,052,110.
