Google is working on an operating system for an augmented reality device

Google is forming an augmented reality operating system team to develop software for a unique, yet-to-be-released augmented reality device.

The AR OS team is in charge of developing the software that controls and manages the hardware in their AR products.

This isn't Google's first foray into augmented reality software, and it follows the company's efforts with ARCore for Android and Tango.

The increasing interest in augmented reality looks to have come at the right time. Apple is reported to be working on its own mixed reality headgear, which might be released as early as next year.
