    I am curious if the emerging space of AR-enabled work instructions - which often provide an incremental layer on top of an industrial control system to frontline workers  - is something this community think about.  There is very little on AR,MR, VR in the blog posts here and integrator profiles don't seem to mention it.  Will systems like Microsoft Dynamics 365 Guides, PTC's Vuforia,  or Taqtile's Manifest become part of the standard toolset for integrators on this site?  If folks out ...
