According to IDC, global headset shipments grew 25.5 percent (year-over-year) in the second quarter, reaching 2.1 million units. Despite growing interest in augmented reality - Apple and Google both released an AR development kit for their mobile platforms this year - virtual reality still accounts for 98 percent of shipments in the AR/VR market. While it will probably take some time before we see the first consumer-focused AR headsets, we will soon get a glimpse of the technology through our mobile phones.
