Is Augmented Reality Over Exposed?

An interesting blog post at Curious Raven, comparing nowadays augmented reality with the early 90's virtual reality. Virtual Reality was in its infancy (and some say, still is) when it hit mainstream, being featured in films, newspaper articles and commercials. The expectations were greater than the technology could support, and virtual reality flopped. Is augmented reality over exposed, is it risking the same fate?

Anyway, Augmented Reality is at risk of getting people excited about the future potential and vision now, while we are still crawling around with basic concepts and marker technology. The industry doesn’t even have a decent lexicon and is generally one giant unexplored area of technology that has not really been trailblazed and pioneered yet. Sure a lot has been done in the last 20 years, but this is still an embryonic market.
