This study forecasts VR and AR in three major hardware buckets. The first is screenless viewers, which strap a smartphone screen to a person's face. The second is tethered head-mounted displays (HMDs), which connect to general-purpose compute device such as a smartphone, PC, or console. The third is standalone HMDs, which have the necessary, compute power integrated into the display or attached to it. Each of these categories will have a role to play in growth of the broader AR/VR market.
