There's levels to this stuff. AR should follow the self-driving car industry's approach of assigning levels to different AR implementations.

I think both this and Google Glass would be level 0, where the device has some degree of contextual awareness and can provide a monocular heads-up display to the user. No attempt is made of superimposing 3D content so it exists in real space. It's almost a stretch to call it AR - hence, level 0.

Hololens would probably be Level 2, where you have binocular overlay, full 3D scanning & tracking, and true 3D CG elements.

Level 3 would probably be an obstructive version of level 2, which means you can seamlessly mix AR and VR.
